TT: Almanac

"I do not see why I should lock myself inside a purely personal idiom. It is largely a matter of when one was born. If I had been born in 1813 instead of 1913 I should have been a romantic, primarly concerned to express my personality in music. Whereas now I am contented to write in the manner best suited to the words, theme, or dramatic situation I happen to be handling."

Benjamin Britten, "Freeman of Lowestoft"
