It is difficult to conceive that the composer of monumental works such as Les Troyens was once a guitarist. In fact, Berlioz’s first musical efforts consisted of transcribing romances of the Ancien Régime for voice and guitar. Performed by soprano Stéphanie D’Oustrac, guitarist Thibault Roussel and pianist Tanguy de Williencourt, this recording features the unique sound of a historic guitar that Paganini once gave to Berlioz. Its programme reimagines what might have been heard during an musical evening at the composer’s home. It includes not only transcriptions but also original songs, chamber music and solo piano pieces.
