Discovery Day: Benjamin Britten
English composer, conductor, and pianist Benjamin Britten has long been regarded as one of the central figures of 20th-century British classical music. Most well-known for his vocal compositions and opera scores, the composer’s oeuvre is vastly wide-ranging, with a dizzying output of orchestral, choral, chamber, and instrumental works. This immersive afternoon includes a multimedia introduction to a new documentary about the composer, song recital, and keynote lecture in celebration of the centenary of his birth.
