To mark the centenary of Benjamin Britten’s birth, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra presents a very special tribute to the Lowestoft-born composer. Born on 22nd November 1913, St. Cecilia’s Day (the patron saint of music), Britten wrote almost one hundred major works all composed with accessibility in mind. This popular programme provides a snapshot of his finest pieces, comprising original orchestral and vocal works alongside Britten’s own arrangements (of music by Mahler and Rossini), two pieces composed by fellow British composers during the year of his birth and Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture, a piece Britten championed.
