Programme Note

When Hector Berlioz got his first taste of Shakespeare in 1827, he not only fell for ‘the wholeheaven of art’ in the Bard’s verse, he also fell madly in love with the actress Harriet Smithson.

Shakespeare inspired a string of works from this most literary and dramatic of composers, including the ardent choral symphony Romeo and Juliet.
