Memoirs of Hector Berlioz by Hector Berlioz

Book Description

Hector Berlioz' (1803-69)autobiography is both an account of his important place in the rise of the Romantic movement and a personal testament. He tells the story of his liaison with Harriet Smithson, and his even more passionate affairs of the mind with Shakespeare, Scott, and Byron. Familiar with all the great figures of the age, Berlioz paints brilliant portraits of Liszt, Wagner, Balzac, Weber, and Rossini, among others. And through Berlioz's intimate and detailed self-revelation, there emerges a profoundly sympathetic and attractive man, driven, finally, by his overwhelming creative urges to a position of lonely eminence. For this new Everyman's edition of The Memoirs , the translator--the composer's most admired biographer--has completely revised the text and the extensive notes to take into account the latest research.
