Berlioz Symphonie fantastique

A lovesick Berlioz composed his epic programme symphony in 1830 after becoming infatuated with the charismatic Irish actress Harriet Smithson, and the quintessentially romantic masterpiece has delighted concert audiences ever since.

An increasingly hallucinatory piece of musical melodrama, the unique work is renowned for its psychedelic depiction of unrequited love and delivers a concert experience quite unlike any other.

Follow the story: Enjoy enhanced listening with real-time digital programme notes during this performance.
