In this program they discuss Bon Soir – Summer Nights concert at The Breakers Thursday, July 18 @ 8:00 pm. This program is perfect for a Summer evening….Full of sensual repertoire. It begins with excerpts from the Nuit d’Ete - Summer Nights by Berlioz who lived from 1803 to 1869. He was revolutionary in the manner in which he viewed composition. He was very programmatic, meaning that he wanted his listeners to visualize the subject matter like a film. Music had been written for occasions, but seldom, if it wasn’t opera, for theatrical purposes.
