Benjamin Britten Biography - Misunderstood Genius
This classical genius found his musical inspiration though his mother. Edith Britten was an amateur musician and would often hold musical events at the family's house in order to increase their otherwise poor social standing and expose Benjamin to songwriting and performance. The musician began composing scores for the BBC and became ingratiated into a small group of contributors which included W.H. Auden - a major influence on the reserved composer. Benjamin gradually came into his own and became known for his ability to marry great works of literature with music. His compositions took a significant turn after performing to concentration camp survivors in 1945 and his before light-hearted works took a more serious direction, with the musician composing The Holy Sonnets of John Donne upon his return.
Sensitive to criticism and the scrutiny of his personal life, it was only in his later years and after his death that this composer's significance was really felt by experts of the genre. Awarded the British Order of Merit, this musician's musical legacy has resulted in the Britten-Pears Foundation - an organisation devoted to the promotion of the great composer's works.
