  • Abstract Benjamin Britten was one of the major twentieth-Century composers in England, wrote twelve song cycles for voice and piano or various instruments, and the most prolific composer of the genre since Gustav Mahler. On this Island written during his early period, Britten employs various Baroque musical traits and the modern music techniques, which shows his influence on the neoclassical style.
    The study of the lecture recital document contains four main sections: the life of the composer, the stylistic features of Britten’s song compositions, the written background of the cycle, and detailed analysis of the whole cycle. On This Island was Britten’s first song cycle written for solo voice and piano. The success of premiere of the cycle brought him as one of the most important composer of this genre in the history of the twentieth-century music.
