Details

Britten’s first encounter with Shostakovich and Rostropovich in September 1960 was the beginning of two enduring friendships. These led to Britten embracing instrumental chamber music, had a profound influence on the Aldeburgh Festival, and created significant links across the Iron Curtain at one of the most tense periods of the Cold War.
