SYMPHONIE FANTASTIQUE

Berlioz
Symphonie fantastique
Young composer Hector Berlioz imagined
a phantasmagorical symphonic adventure,
complete with witches, guillotines and
colorful, opium-induced hallucinations.
Even in the stirring and Romantic
atmosphere of Paris in the 1820s, this
music sounded shocking and outrageous.

(Military)
Late eighteenth-century London was the
bustling capital of an expanding empire,
its citizens rapidly acquiring wealth and
eagerly seeking the latest cultural delights.
Who better to entertain them than
the world-famous Josef Haydn, whose
newly composed, modern symphonies
were bursting with brilliance, wit and
deep sentiment?

Symphony No. 2
Who would write the first great
American symphony? Enter Charles Ives,
a successful insurance executive,
musical maverick and wildly experimental
composer. In the early twentieth century,
who else could have included gospel
hymns, tunes by Stephen Foster and
barn-dance fiddles in a symphony?
