Steuart John Rudolf Bedford, OBE (born 31 July 1939, London) is a British orchestral and opera conductor and pianist. He is the brother of composer David Bedford and of singer Peter Lehmann Bedford and a grandson of Liza Lehmann. Bedford is particularly associated with the music of Benjamin Britten, and conducted the world premiere of Death in Venice in 1973 Bedford made his operatic conducting debut in February 1964 at the Oxford Playhouse with Britten's Albert Herring.

For a long time, Britten's own 1955 recording, with Peter Pears as Peter Quint and Jennifer Vyvyan as the Governess, had the field to itself. Then the version conducted by Colin Davis and made as a film soundtrack offered an alternative view, and most recently, Daniel Harding's version for Virgin Classics, with Ian Bostridge and Joan Rodgers, has taken the honours

Digital Booklet: Britten: Turn of the Screw (The). Digital Booklet: Britten: Turn of the Screw (The). Here the Aldeburgh Festival Ensemble is recorded in clear and lifelike sound. As well as I thought I knew the score, I heard new things in the orchestra that I hadn't known were there. Steuart Bedford, of course, is our reigning Britten specialist. He was a long-time colleague of Britten's, has conducted all of his operas over the years, and was entrusted by the ailing Britten with the première of 'Death in Venice. This is actually a reissue by Naxos of a 2CD set first published in 1994 by the now-defunct Collins Classics
