From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article is about the British composer. For other uses, see Britten (disambiguation) Benjamin Britten Edward Benjamin Britten, Baron Britten of Aldeburgh OM CH (22 November 1913 – 4 December 1976) was an English composer conductor , and pianist . Showing prodigious talent from an early age – he composed his Quatre Chansons françaises for soprano and orchestra at the age of fourteen – he first came to public attention with the a cappella choral work A Boy Was Born . With the premiere of his opera Peter Grimes in 1945 he leapt to international fame, and for the next fifteen years he devoted much of his compositional attention to writing operas, several of which now appear regularly on international stages. Britten's interests as a composer were wide-ranging; he produced important music in such varied genres as orchestral, choral, solo vocal (much of it written for the tenor Peter Pears ), chamber and instrumental, as well as film music. He also took a great interest in writing music for children and amateur performers, and was a fine pianist and conductor.

Benjamin Britten was born into a middle-class family living in the small port of Lowestoft in East Anglia, a region of England to which Britten remained attached throughout his life. His father was a dentist but his mother was a keen amateur singer who encouraged him to learn both the viola and the piano with local teachers and to compose. By the age of fourteen he had written over one hundred youthful pieces of music: some of these were to form the basis of his early Simple Symphony . He met the composer Frank Bridge in 1927 at a concert that Bridge was conducting, and showed him some of his compositions; as a result Bridge agreed to take him on as a private pupil. Bridge gave Britten a firm technical foundation and introduced him to the music of many contemporary foreign composers.

(Edward) Benjamin Britten
22 November 1913 - 4 December 1976
Britten was born, by happy coincidence, on St. Cecilia's Day, at the family home in Lowestoft, Suffolk, England. His father was a dentist. He was the youngest of four children, with a brother, Robert (1907), and two sisters, Barbara (1902) and Beth (1909). He was educated locally, and studied, first, piano, and then, later, viola, from private teachers. He began to compose as early as 1919, and after about 1922, composed steadily until his death. At a concert in 1927, conducted by composer Frank Bridge, he met Bridge, later showed him several of his compositions, and ultimately Bridge took him on as a private pupil. After two years at Gresham's School in Holt, Norfolk, he entered the Royal College of Music in London (1930) where he studied composition with John Ireland and piano with Arthur Benjamin. During his stay at the RCM he won several prizes for his compositions. He completed a choral work, A Boy was Born, in 1933; at a rehearsal for a broadcast performance of the work by the BBC Singers, he met tenor Peter Pears, the beginning of a lifelong personal and professional relationship. (Many of Britten's solo songs, choral and operatic works feature the tenor voice, and Pears was the designated soloist at many of their premieres.) From about 1935 until the beginning of World War II, Britten did a great deal of composing for the GPO Film Unit, for BBC Radio, and for small, usually left-wing, theater groups in London. During this period he met and worked frequently with the poet W. H. Auden who provided texts for numerous songs as well as complete scripts for which Britten provided incidental music.

British foremost composer who helped revive interest in opera through his "Peter Grimes," 1945 and other works, including compositions for motion pictures. He studied and from age seven and from age 14, composed music that was straightforward and conservatively modern with a dramatic flair. In 1937, then 24 years old, he made his mark outside England with the premiere at the Salzburg Festival of his "Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge," a work of stunning brilliance. The son of a dentist, Britten was raised in the seaside town of Lowestoft. He went to boarding school and later fell into the raffish company of W.H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood in the London '30s. According to his letters, the gay writers took him to bath houses and urged him "to decide something about my sexual life." Neither was able to crack his physical reserve, nor was his relationship with the tenor Peter Pears consummated until they reached a hotel in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in June 1939. For most of Britten's life, homosexual contact between consenting adults was an imprisonable offense. It was during Britten's time in America during WW II that his relationship with Pears deepened to become a nearly 40-year partnership. They were baited by homophobes among their colleagues and taunted by other musicians over their pacifism and socialism. Becoming hyper-sensitive to criticism and paranoid about his privacy, Britten was a timid but deeply ambitious man, fortified in his resolve by the two people who loved him most, his mother and his lover. When his adored and adoring mother died in 1937, he lost "the grandest mother a person could have." It was within weeks that Pears entered his life. It was noted that Pears, a lyric tenor, had a voice "exactly like Britten's mother."

Suffolk, England Occupation(s) Composer Edward Benjamin Britten, Baron Britten , Order of Merit (OM), Order of the Companions of Honour (CH) (November 22, 1913 Lowestoft, Suffolk – December 4, 1976 Aldeburgh, Suffolk) was a British composer, conductor, and pianist His mother was a talented, amateur singer, and this undoubtedly contributed to his great affinity for vocal composition. His song cycles, large-scale choral works and operas are considered among the finest examples of vocal writing in the twentieth century. Though he lived though the upheaval of musical style brought on by the atonalists of the Second Viennese School, his style remained deeply rooted in the tonal idiom of late Romanticism and very much of the same vernacular of Gustav Mahler, Dmitri Shostakovich and Samuel Barber.

    Britten, Benjamin, Baron Britten of Aldeburgh
    Britten, Benjamin, Baron Britten of Aldeburgh, , English composer. Britten is considered the most significant British composer since Purcell . As a youth he composed instrumental works, displaying technical brilliance and colorful orchestration. One example, The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra (1946), written for a film, is based on a theme by Purcell. His most characteristic expression is achieved in vocal music. His many song cycles and choral works include A Boy Was Born (1933) and A Ceremony of Carols (1942). Britten's great War Requiem (1962), based on the bitter war poems of Wilfred Owen , was sung at the dedication in England of the reconstructed Coventry Cathedral, destroyed during World War II. In his operas, which include Paul Bunyan Peter Grimes The Rape of Lucretia The Turn of the Screw A Midsummer Night's Dream (1960), and
