Michael Tippett

Sir Michael Kemp Tippett (1905–98) is generally acknowledged to be one of the most important British composers of the twentieth century. His deeply held humanitarian and pacifist beliefs shaped both his life and his music, serving a prison sentence as a conscientious objector in the Second World War and being one of the first openly gay composers to explore issues of sexuality in his work.
