Hector Berlioz

Hector Berlioz (La Côte-Saint-André, 1803 – Paris, 1869) was a French composer, writer and critic; he was considered the greatest conductor of his era. In 1830 he won the Prix de Rome.

The Symphonie fantastique of 1830, an orchestral work that contains autobiographical elements, suggested new paths in composition. [1]

In 1865, his Memoirs were completed. A statue in Berlioz’s is in the Place Hector Berlioz at La Côte Saint-André in Paris.

Berlioz first married Harriet Smithson, and Marie Recio who would become his second wife.
