I, BERLIOZ

Auditorium - Saturday 24 Aug 2019, 15:15

We commemorate the 150th anniversary of Hector Berlioz with a screening of Tony Palmer’s dramatic documentary, with Corin Redgrave as Berlioz.


"I, Hector Louis Berlioz, composer, musician, citizen of France, tell you, in this my Last Will and Testament, that my subject is - and has always been - war." So begins an epic journey through the terrible struggles that Berlioz endured to get his great opera ‘The Trojans’ performed. He never succeeded, and the effort cost him his life. An artist best known for his orchestral compositions ‘Grande Messe des Morts’ and ‘Symphonie Fantastique’, French romantic composer Berlioz arguably obtained far greater recognition posthumously than he did during his lifetime. The celebrated music documentarist Tony Palmer tackles a biographical profile of Berlioz in this unique nonfiction work from 1992. The program places strongest emphasis on the influence that Berlioz wielded on subsequent generations of musicians. Palmer takes Berlioz’s letters and using Corin Redgrave performing as Berlioz, translates them into this memorable documentary portrait. Originally transmitted as a TV South Bank Show.
