Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael Berkeley is a British composer and broadcaster on music. His father was the composer Sir Lennox Berkeley. Michael was a chorister at Westminster Cathedral, and he frequently sang in works composed or conducted by his godfather, Benjamin Britten. Berkeley was educated at The Oratory School, an independent school in the village of Woodcote, near Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire. He studied composition, singing and piano at the Royal Academy of Music, but it was not until his late twenties, when he went to study with Richard Rodney Bennett, that he concentrated on composition. In 1977 he was awarded the Guinness Prize for Composition; two years later he was appointed Associate Composer to the Scottish Chamber Orchestrashow more
