Perhaps the ideal of the nineteenth-century Romantic composer and one of the true revolutionary figures in music Hector Berlioz (1803-69) is admired today for his sense of dramatic expression, capacity for abundant melody, and mastery of orchestral color. His abilities are showcased in this volume, containing five of his most popular and widely performed overtures: The famous Roman Carnival and Corsair as well as the overtures to three operas: Benvenuto Cellini, Beatrice and Benedict, and Trojans in Carthage.
All five are reproduced from the definitive Breitkopf & H rtel Complete Works edition. Gathered in this inexpensive, durable volume, they invite musicians and music lovers to study and enjoy what Grove's Dictionary calls, "the novelty, richness, and striking originality of his magical orchestration."
