Biography

Hector Berlioz, the great representative of French Romanticism

Hector Berlioz was a composer, conductor, man of letters, passionate artist, bold and committed. He undertook his musical education very freely at the risk of exclusion from the traditional channels. He was a pupil of Lesueur at the Paris Conservatoire where he preferred creating havoc rather than study. He resisted his parents’ ambition for him to be a doctor and although he failed to win the Prix de Rome four times, his passion for Ludwig von Beethoven, Christoph Willibald Gluck and William Shakespeare was to be of a greater asset to his composer’s imagination.
