Frank Howes, writing in Grove's Dictionary, has said of Benjamin
Britten: "He shows many of the marks of the great composer. His all-
round musicianship relates him to the great Kapellmeister tradition of the
18th century." Some call Britten, together with Shostakovitch, the greatest
of the younger contemporary composers. Certainly his contribution to the
traditional aspect of 20th century music is a major one, and we have chosen
to honor him in this, his fiftieth year.

Britten was born in East Anglia on Nov. 22, 1913. He lived for a time
in the U.S., and finally settled in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, where he established
the Aldeburgh Festival. His first major orchestral work was "Variations
on a Theme of Frank Bridge" (1937); his operas include "Peter Grimes,"
"The Turn of the Screw" and "Billy Budd." He has written incidental
music for numerous dramas, films and radio plays. His choral music in-
cludes "A Ceremony of Carols," "Spring Symphony" and "War Requiem."
He is the composer of such familiar works as "Matinees Musicales" (after
Rossini) and "The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra" (after Purcell),
and has written two quartets, countless songs and concertos for both piano
and violin.

In this Folio, we offer over 40 works by Britten; 31 programs in all,
including those in which he conducts or performs. Our Festival will con-
clude with the three works commissioned from British composers for the
consecration of Coventry Cathedral, including the premiere recording of
the "War Requiem." This Britten Festival was arranged for KPFK by
William Malloch, Music Director and David Ossman, Program Co-Ordi-
nator, who thank the BBC for their cooperation.
