The Travel Diaries of Peter Pears, 1936-1978 Summary


The Travel Diaries of Peter Pears, 1936-1978 by Peter Pears

This volume brings together all the travel diaries of Sir Peter Pears (1910-1986), principal interpreter of Britten's works. Pears accompanied Britten on many of his trips and the record of their tour of the Far East in 1955 is of special interest. Here the sound of the gamelan orchestras enchanted Britten and deeply influenced his musical development.
