(1916 - 1983)

The English composer Bernard Stevens was a pupil of Dent at Cambridge and of R.O. Morris and Gordon Jacob in London before his own appointment in 1948 as professor of composition at the London Royal College of Music. His Marxist philosophy was instrumental in forming his style, which is clear and approachable, but has contributed to the subsequent unjustified neglect of his music.


Stevens’s compositions include a chamber opera, The Shadow of the Glen based on Synge, vocal settings of texts that include the work of Rabindranath Tagore, and a variety of orchestral and chamber music.
