Description
Born in the East Anglian seaside town of Lowestoft in 1913, Benjamin Britten showed early gifts as a composer, studying with Frank Bridge (Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge). Although he gained international renown, Britten remained thoroughly English in inspiration. His works appeal to all ages, from the delightful Simple Symphony ("Playful Pizzicato"), composed for a school orchestra, and The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra ("Theme" and "Fugue") to the haunting Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings (IV. Elegy), many song settings ("Tell Me the Truth About Love"), several sacred masterpieces (Hymn to St. Cecilia; A Hymn to the Virgin) and his deeply pacifict War Requiem ("Lacrymosa"; "Requiem aeternam").
