A visionary artist who probed deep into the human psyche, Michael Tippett sought to unite apparently conflicting styles and celebrate the vast energy of cultural diversity in his music.
Wigmore Hallís Tippett Series marks the fifteenth anniversary of the composerís death with a retrospective survey of works central to his creative development, opening with the Beethoven-inspired first string quartet and exploring the cantata Boyhoodís End, first performed at Morley College in 1943 by Peter Pears and Benjamin Britten.
