Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, CBE (29 March 1936 – 24 December 2012) was an English composer renowned for his film scores and his jazz performance as much as for his challenging concert works. He was based in New York City from 1979 until his death in 2012.

Bennett was born at Broadstairs, Kent, but was raised in Devon during World War II.His mother, Joan Esther (Spink), was a pianist who had trained with Gustav Holst and sang in the first professional performance of The Planets. His father, Rodney Bennett, (1890-1948) was a children's book author and poet, who worked with Roger Quilter on his theatre works and provided new words for some of the numbers in the Arnold Book of Old Songs.
