About this event

Sir John Eliot Gardiner’s second appearance of the season showcases the work of the conductor’s other period-instrument ensemble – the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, specialists in 19th- and 20th-century repertoire. Gardiner’s brisk and brilliant take on Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony promises to find fresh energy within a familiar work – a Classical curtain-raiser to Berlioz’s extravagant Symphonie fantastique, the height of Romantic excess, with its quasi-cinematic storytelling and vivid, ghoulish soundscapes.
