ABSTRACT
The article introduces Hector Berlioz, considered as one of the most compelling personalities who have pursued the craft of musical composition. As described, he allegedly is such a stupendous innovator in the field of orchestration and the most romantic of all the romantic composers. He was considered to have a dual personality; the real Berlioz is a melodist of fairly conservative while the second is the artificial, a self-conscious tinkerer who comes up with calculated theatrical effects.
