Sir Michael Kemp Tippett OM CH CBE (2 January 1905 – 8 January 1998) was an English composer who rose to prominence during and immediately after the Second World War.

Sir Michael Kemp Tippett OM CH CBE (2 January 1905 – 8 January 1998) was an English composer who rose to prominence during and immediately after the Second World War. In his lifetime he was sometimes ranked with his contemporary Benjamin Britten as one of the leading British composers of the 20th century. Among his best-known works are the oratorio A Child of Our Time, the orchestral Fantasia Concertante on a Theme of Corelli, and the opera The Midsummer Marriage.

The compositional career of the British composer Michael Tippett extended over eight decades, from juvenilia and unpublished works written in the 1920s to his final works of the 1990s. He composed across many genres, from large-scale orchestral works and full-length operas to solo songs and brass band fanfares. From the mid-1930s his music began to be published and performed publicly.

A Child of Our Time is a secular oratorio by the British composer Michael Tippett (1905–1998), who also wrote the libretto. Composed between 1939 and 1941, it was first performed at the Adelphi Theatre, London, on 19 March 1944. The work was inspired by events that affected Tippett profoundly: the assassination in 1938 of a German diplomat by a young Jewish refugee, and the Nazi government's reaction in the form of a violent pogrom against its Jewish population-called Kristallnacht.

A two time Emmy nominee and successful entrepreneur for almost two decades, Tippett is recognized an as international expert. You can find me at ww. ippett. CommunitySee All. 42 people like this. 43 people follow this.

Michael Tippett was one of the most personally sensitive and intellectually responsive men I have ever met - generous and exuberant and open-hearted. His was essentially a lucky life; he lived to see every thing he had done vindicated and applauded. Embarrassments and doubts regularly provoked by his new works soon enough fell away, leaving the latter free to sit by the old, in what now seems like a pure constellation. Tippett asked Eliot to write the libretto for Child.

Sir Michael Kemp Tippett OM CH CBE (2 January 1905 – 8 January 1998) . The 15-year-old Michael and his brother Peter remained at school in England, travelling to France for their holidays. New influences, including those of jazz and blues after his first visit to America in 1965, became increasingly evident in his compositions. Michael found Stamford much more congenial than Fettes, and developed both academically and musically.
