Britten: #101

About this playlist

Britten was a pioneer, and a composer with a very distinct voice. He defined what an opera could mean in the 20th century, stunned audiences with powerful music for the concert hall, and connected with music making in Britain in a special way – writing much music specially for children to perform and founding Aldeburgh festival.
