  • FRENCH SYMPHONIES From the Nineteenth Century To The Present

    A Discography Of CDs And LPs Prepared by Michael Herman

    Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)

    Born in La Cte-Saint-Andr, Isre. As a child, he learned to play several instruments from his father, a doctor who was an amateur musician. He had private musical lessons from Jean Franois Le Sueur before entering the Paris Conservatory where Le Sueur and Anton Reicha were his composition and counterpoint teachers. He went on to become one of France's greatest composers whose music pushed composition in revolutionary directions. In addition to the symphonies, his large-scale masterpieces were the opera "Les Troyens" and the choral works "La Damnation de Faust," "L'Enfance du Christ" and the requiem "Grand Messe des Morts." With the exception of his various overtures, there are very few other orchestral works by Berlioz.
