Britten at 100To mark the centenary of the birth of one of the finest and most influential composers of the past century, Kings Place is holding a three-day Britten at 100 special. Three concerts on consecutive evenings see Benjamin Britten's own works placed alongside music by some of the composers he most admired (such as Schubert and Fauré), his contemporaries (including Finzi, Tippett and Grace Williams) and a handful of present-day British composers who carry on the song-writing tradition with which Britten is so closely associated.

 

About Kings Place

Just 150 metres from King's Cross and St Pancras stations and with a waterside setting, the Dixon-Jones designed Kings Place combines the offices of The Guardian newspaper with a concert hall and two art galleries. As you'd expect from the architects behind the recent improvements to the Royal Opera House and National Portrait Gallery it's a well designed complex of curvaceous surfaces and appealing public spaces.
