Steuart Bedford is named as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to music. The British conductor was a long-term collaborator with Benjamin Britten and as a result is a leading expert on his music. In 2016 he will conduct Robert Carsen and Festival d’Aix-en-Provence’s production of Peter Grimes on tour in Bahrain and at the Beijing Music Festival.
