Beautifully written… [A] comprehensive account of the life and works of the romantic composer whose brilliant music and eccentric life style dazzled and disconcerted his contemporaries. Without overemphasizing the sensational aspects of Berlioz’s turbulent personal life, the author skillfully weaves together autobiographical details and musical analysis, examining in depth the composer’s working methods and artistic development, and giving penetrating insights into some of his best-known works.Publishers Weekly

A lucid biographical study of a type and on a scale hitherto unavailable for Berlioz. This is an invaluable chronicle of a remarkable life.—Julian Rushton
