In the course of his many travels to the German-speaking world between 1842 and 1867 Berlioz had occasion to make contact with numerous musicians and personalities, many but not all of them German, some of whom he became close to. These various individuals are discussed on a number of different pages on this site; the function of this page is to bring together in a single alphabetical table the names of the most important of these, together with links to the page or pages where each of them is dealt with in more detail. It is thus different in its presentation from the companion pages Berlioz and London: friends and acquaintances, Berlioz and Russia: friends and acquaintances and Berlioz and Marseille: friends and acquaintances, where the individuals concerned are dealt with at length on those pages, whereas in the case of Germany the material is presented in different places (Berlin, Dresden, Leipzig etc.).
For the sake of greater completeness the net has been cast wide: not only is Germany interpreted here in a broad sense to include central Europe (Austria, Bohemia, Hungary), but it seemed convenient not to exclude a few names which relate to Berlioz’s travels in Belgium (Fétis, Adolphe Samuel).
