(1913 - 1976)
The founding composer of Faber Music, Benjamin Britten is a central figure in this history of British music. Blessed with tremendous imagination and facility he composed across all genres, though vocal music was always a central preoccupation. One of Britten's greatest achievements was the reinvigoration of the English-language opera tradition with works like Death in Venice, many of which are now firmly established in the international repertoire.
