Hector Berlioz was one of the most significant artistic figures of the nineteenth century and one of its most original composers, revolutionising the emotional capacity of the orchestra.

Despite that he compelled to supplement his income with writing – at which he also excelled. He portrayed family, friends, enemies and organisations with an irresistible combination of exuberance, humour and indignation.

David Cairns’ translation captures to perfection the dazzling prose of the original, and is read here by the distinguished actor and Berlioz enthusiast Malcolm Sinclair, bringing the man’s personality and style brilliantly to life.
