Britten turns 100!

English composer, conductor and pianist, Benjamin Britten would have turned 100 on November 22, 2013. A dominant figure in 20thcentury British art music, Britten’s success of Peter Grimes in 1945 brought a revival to English opera. Britten’s distinctive tonal language remains accessible today.

You can access Britten’s music at Naxos Music Library  or Classical Music Library on the Case network in the Library, or from anywhere using VPN Client .

Happy Birthday, Benjamin Britten!
