Benjamin Britten: Peace and Conflict
The film features performances of Britten's music by tenor James Gilchrist with pianist Iain Burnside, the Benyounes Quartet, cellist Raphael Wallfisch, baritone Gerard Collett and the Gresham School choir and brass group. The narration is spoken by legendary actor John Hurt and interviewees include Anita Lasker Wallfisch, composer Joseph Horovitz and Sue Phipps, Britten's and Peter Pears's agent for many years.
"Peace and Conflict is a beautiful and touching evocation of Britten's schooling at Gresham's and the values there inculcated, which remained with him for life. This is a moving and engrossing film, with terrific performances and tender appreciation of Britten's music." Paul Kildea (Britten's biographer).
