Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique
About this performance
French composer Berlioz’s epic Symphonie Fantastique is a prime example of programmatic music – that is, music with a clear story that the music seeks to evoke.
It follows the protagonist's melodious, energetically-heaving, and sometimes horrifying fever dream of love, death, and the supernatural.
