A concert from the Palais des Beaux-Arts, (BOZAR) Brussels, as part of the Klarafestival 2019. Presented by Fiona Talkington. Berlioz, Wagner and Debussy.

The Montreal Symphony Orchestra under their chief conductor Kent Nagano perform a programme creatively titled 'Symphonic Redemption', which uses Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder as a fulcrum between Berlioz and Debussy to span the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with Debussy's orchestral language continuing Wagner's own explorations.
