A Berlioz Celebration

“Which can lift us to the sublimest heights – music, or love?” Hector Berlioz was the ultimate Romantic composer, pouring out his most passionate emotions in music of dazzling imagination and power.

Broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, this celebration concert sweeps from the tender poetry of Les Nuits d’été (with the original 4 different voices) to the no-holds-barred phantasmagoria of his Symphonie fantastique: as astonishing now as it was in 1830.
