Corinthian Orchestra: Fantastique!

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

Bewitching images abound in the Corinthian Orchestra’s performance of Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique.

In their annual visit, the orchestra performs the dreamlike work, a wild musical ride that takes us from bucolic landscapes to the furious dances of a witches’ sabbath.

Composed in 1830, the spine-tingling piece – the 27-year-old composer’s first symphony – was inspired by his experience of opium and obsession with the actress Harriet Smithson; the fourth movement, he claimed, completed over the course of a single night.
