“A great genius can be given no more worthy testimonial 
to his honour than an accurate edition of his complete works.”
Ludwig Ritter von Köchel, 1875

Introduction

    This page provides bibliographical information on Berlioz’s musical and literary works, concentrating on the most recent and up-to-date editions available, the publication of which has been prompted by the centenary celebrations of 1969 and the bicentenary celebrations of 2003. In addition, a listing of the volumes of the older Breitkopf and Härtel edition of the musical works (1900-1907) has been provided for ease of reference. For an extensive list of books written on Berlioz and his music from his time to the present day see Berlioz Bibliography (and its French version). For a selection of major recordings of Berlioz’s musical works see Berlioz Discography (and its French version).

    For a full listing of all Berlioz’s musical works see Berlioz: A Listing of his Musical Works, also available in French.

I. Musical Works

The Breitkopf and Härtel edition

    Published by Breitkopf and Härtel in Leipzig between 1900 and 1907, and edited by Charles Malherbe and Felix Weingartner, this was the first attempt at a complete edition of Berlioz’s works – a project that Berlioz had toyed with in his lifetime, but which did not come to fruition. But the edition was incomplete – it lacked in particular the two major operas Benvenuto Cellini and Les Troyens, neither of which had been published in full score in Berlioz’s lifetime. Furthermore, its editorial practices were not in line with the best standards of musicological scholarship and took unacceptable liberties with Berlioz’s text.

Critique Musicale

Berlioz wrote his very first music critique in 1823 at the age of 20, in the form of a letter to the journal Le Corsaire. You will find the original French and our English translation of this article in the Berlioz Special Bicentenary section.
