The Berlioz treatment
Andrew McGregor joins the BBC Philharmonic and conductor Douglas Boyd to explore music by Berlioz; those who influenced him and those he influenced.
The BBC Philharmonic continues Radio 3's Berlioz celebrations with conductor Douglas Boyd in conversation with Andrew McGregor. Referencing Berlioz's "A treatise on Modern Instrumentation," their programme explores Berlioz's own music, his arrangement of a well-known song, and draws on those composers whose innovative and colourful use of the orchestra inspired him further. A more modern French master, Henri Dutilleux takes up the mantle in his Cello Concerto written a century after Berlioz's death.
