The Hector Berlioz Website

Berlioz in London

February 1848

    Berlioz first visited London between November 1847 and July 1848. He had come on an invitation by  the French-born director of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Louis-Antoine Jullien. This page presents the text of an article on Berlioz published on 12 February 1848 in the wake of Berlioz’s first concert of his own works in London; the article is almost certainly by Charles Gruneisen. The text of the article and the accompanying image have been scanned from our own copy of the issue of 12 February 1848 of the Illustrated London News.

    You will find the review of the concert published in the same issue of ILN at A concert in February 1848 (also probably by Charles Gruneisen).
