BERLIOZ Symphonie Fantastique

Berlioz bares his soul in music, torturing himself with passion - or obsession - in his Symphonie Fantastique, one of the most famous portraits of an artist ever written and utilizing an enormous orchestra. Through tender love scenes, a thrilling march to the scaffold, and an opium-induced nightmare, Berlioz’s riveting masterpiece is unforgettable. Guitarist Menu Su guides us through Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, the most popular concerto ever composed for guitar and orchestra.
