In Paris, on September 11, 1827, the French composer Hector Berlioz fell madly in love with Irish actress Harriet Smithson. The intensity of his infatuation became inextricably tangled with a symphony he was to compose, a composition that broke new ground with the lavish virtuosity of its orchestration. Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique is acclaimed as one of the most extraordinary and truly original works ever written.
