The Great Composer Quiz – September 21, 2020
Time’s up, pencils down, the Great Composer whose written words were as dynamic as his music, as he wrote music criticism for thirty years. He also wrote the most compelling autobiography of any Great Composer. The answer is Hector Berlioz. His books include Evenings with the Orchestra, The Art of Music, A Treatise on Modern Instrumentation (Who better than the composer of Symphonie fantastique to write such a book?) and his literary masterpiece Mémoires de Hector Berlioz.
