Tippett & Britten: Portrait of a wartime Friendship

Find out about The Tippett & Britten 2019 exhibition at The Red House. The exhibition runs from 1st March 2019 to 27th October 2019.

Michael Tippett (1905-1998) and Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) were the two giants of British music in the twentieth century. What is often characterised as their bitter rivalry was in truth a firm, lifelong, slightly wary friendship, which would survive artistic and personal disagreements.

The 2019 exhibition Tippett & Britten: Portrait of a Wartime Friendship tells the story of their relationship at its most intense, during the latter years of World War II. Their lives became politically and creatively intertwined through a series of remarkable events that were dictated by the brutality and hardship of the times. The exhibition will feature a number of portraits of Tippett, collected together for the first time, and coincides with the publication of Michael Tippet: The Biography, by Oliver Soden (who has curated this exhibition).
