Essential Britten reading,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britten's Children (Paperback)
This is a superb book - well written and entertaining to read, excellently researched, personal in tone but measured in the author's viewpoint and his appraisal of the difficult subject of Britten's relationships with young and adolescent boys. It paints a well-rounded picture of Britten himself, including his great personal kindness to the children he befriended, and the book is particularly good on the subject of the composer's own fixation on boyhood. I learned a great deal from it.
