Product Description:

This sensitive documentary explores the tumultuous life of Benjamin Britten, one of the modern era's premiere composers. Included here are excerpts from BILLY BUDD, A MIDSUMMER'S NIGHT DREAM, and DEATH IN VENICE, as well as appearances by contemporaries Leonard Bernstein, Janet Baker, and Peter Pears.

Product Description:

"Palmer is a master of the medium - he takes us into the minds of men of music and explains why they accomplished what they did. This is the most absorbing film ever made about a composer, how he worked, what he thought and what made him what he was. It is as important as any book written on the man and his music." John Ardoin, The New York Times. With Benjamin Britten, Leonard Bernstein, Janet Baker and featuring extracts from Peter Grimes, Billy Budd and many others.
