Great Britten!   Leave a comment

A portrait of the composer Benjamin Britten from 1948.Today, November 22, is the 100th birthday of Benjamin Britten, who many (including me) consider the greatest English composer of the 20th century. NPR has a wonderful short article about him. Do give a listen to the Serenade and War Requiem excerpts, and if that’s not enough, try the Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes – just about my favorite orchestral music! Happy Birthday, Ben!
