The ensemble joins the Britten100 celebrations with a series of concerts at venues across the country exploring the personal and professional relationships of Benjamin Britten. From his teacher and mentor Frank Bridge to his faithful music assistant in Aldeburgh, Imogen Holst, Britten’s circle included some of the most fascinating composers of the twentieth century.
