Hector Berlioz’s father was a doctor and he wanted his son to do just like him. However, Hector was fascinated by music since his first communion. While learning music, Hector was also learning to read geographical maps. He dreamed about travels and to become a sailor. From his home, Hector could see the Alps, but he wanted to see farther; behind the mountains was Italy. Later, Berlioz became a passionate traveller. He always created landscapes with his music. Text read by Benoît Allemane and Judith Levasseur. Copublished with Erato Disques.
