CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique

Monday, October 15, 2018 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Sir John Eliot Gardiner by Steve J. Sherman, Michael Spyres by Dax Bedell, and Ashley Riches by Debbie Scanlon
Obsession, madness, murder, and redemption are portrayed in the richly Romantic music—performed on period instruments—of Berlioz. His Symphonie fantastique is a phantasmagoric tale that depicts an opium overdose, nightmares of murder, a guillotine execution, and a terrifying Witches’ Sabbath. Berlioz called his rarely heard Lélio a “conclusion and complement” to the Symphonie fantastique. Lélio uses vocal soloists, chorus, and orchestra—including two pianists performing on one instrument—to tell of the Symphonie hero’s awaking from the nightmare, his musings on art, and his ultimate triumph as a composer.

Part of: Orchestral Masterworks
