Description
The son of a dentist and an amateur musician, Benjamin Britten began composing at the age of five, and by his death in 1976 was considered the best English composer of the last 300 years. In this "deeply sympathetic and appreciative work" (Booklist), poet Neil Powell chronicles the notoriously shy Britten's lifelong love affair with tenor Peter Pears, as well as his friendships with W.H. Auden, Paul Bowles, Dmitri Shostakovich, Louis MacNeice, and Mstislav Rostropovich. Powell also offers a look behind the scenes at the creation of such masterworks as Peter Grimes, Variations on a Theme By Frank Bridge, Billy Budd, and War Requiem.
