Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What a joy to read the musical insights of one of the most wonderful composers in the world. The essay on Gluck alone is worth the price of the book. I just gave this as a gift to another Berlioz-lover. He was thrilled and started to read it right away.

I'm still waiting to know what the original title in French means (A Travers Chants). "Through songs"??

Format: Hardcover
Hector Berlioz is remembered mainly as the composer of Symphony Fantastique, but he was also a gifted music critic and writer. This collection of essays is entertaining and witty; Berlioz's satirical and biting humor is liberally spread throughout. This book is accessible to amateurs and professionals alike, filled with anecdotes and insight into the mind of a creative genius.
