Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique

Programme to include:

Ludwig Van Beethoven: Overture, Coriolan
Franz Liszt: Piano Concerto No.2 in A
Interval
Hector Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique

A captivating fantasy programme that offsets Berlioz's groundbreaking Symphonie fantastique with Beethoven's overture Coriolan.

Berlioz's work climaxes in an orgiastic, opium-fuelled witches' Sabbath. Whereas Beethoven's overture is a striking evocation of Coriolanus' story, the gallant Roman general who was destroyed by his overweening pride.
