      Padmore is equally at ease with the minutely expressive wordsetting of the Britten songs and the long, soaring lines of the Tippett’ (BBC Music Magazine) ‘This is a remarkable debut recital by one of the most intelligent, musical and thoughtful British singers before the public today. English composer, conductor and pianist. He and his contemporary Michael Tippett are among several pairs of composers who dominated English art music in the 20th century. Of their music, Britten’s early on achieved, and has maintained, wider international circulation.

Sir Michael Tippett is widely considered to be one of the most individual composers of the twentieth century, whose music continues to be performed to critical acclaim throughout the world. Written by a team of international scholars, this Companion provides a wide ranging and accessible study of Tippett.

The Music of Benjamin Britten Full Description: "Peter Evans discusses all the published compositions in subdivisions of genre and period, and devotes a separate chapter to each opera.

Soden’s book complements Paul Kildea’s fine biography of Britten, which is also good on their relationship. Tippett always acknowledged Britten’s greater fluency as a composer and wrote after he died: “Britten has been for me the most purely musical person I.

Both composers heard Balinese music in the s: in Tippett's case, on records, in Britten's, through the Canadian composer Colin McPhee, whose piano-duet transcriptions of Balinese ceremonial music they premiered in and also recorded.

Full Description: "This is a collection of Sir Michael Tippett's essays and articles drawn from his two previously published collections (Moving into Aquarius and Music of the Angels, both long out of print), plus a selection of new material, chiefly on Tippett's more recent works.

The essays, many revised and all now made available in a single edition, will be published to mark Sir Michael's. Tippett has been much neglected since his death by both performers and commentators compared to his ubiquitous contemporary Benjamin Britten.

Peter Evans, on p. 71 of his book cited in note 2.Oliver Soden says: 'There are many books about Tippett's music but it is extraordinary that he has yet to be the subject of a full-length biography. Tippett's was such a long exciting life: from his mother's imprisonment as a suffragette to his own jail sentence as a conscientious objector; from his experiences during two world wars to his.
