"Symphonie fantastique", Berlioz

Berlioz Symphonie fantastique

Dec10
7:30 PM
Weber, Shostakovich, Berlioz
Tuesday, December 10, 2013

One of the most popular cello works ever written, Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto is a profound expression of struggle and triumph, its sardonic humor giving way to elegiac beauty. Its dramatic character is more than matched by Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, from its sumptuous ball-scene with a haunting waltz melody to the evil howls and cackles of its witches' Sabbath.

Additional dates for this performance on December 5 and December 7.
