Last year the British Library acquired a draft manuscript of Benjamin Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. British Library Music Curator Nicolas Bell will tell the story of the composition of this famous work, originally written as a film score and later adapted as a concert piece.
This event is part of Britten 100, celebrating the centenary of Benjamin Britten in 2013
