Description - Selling Britten by Paul Kildea

'... frequently fascinating book.' -Times Higher Education SupplementThis book explores the effect of commercial and national institutions on the music of one of the foremost British composers of the twentieth century, Benjamin Britten. Radio, the recording industry, government subsidies for the arts, Covent Garden, the post-war establishment of music festivals, were all agents for dramatic changes in the art-music culture which Britten skilfully used to his advantage.
