Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

Enter a fantastic world with David Robertson as guide in Sibelius’s mythic En Saga and Berlioz’s beautiful nightmare, Symphonie fantastique.

Sibelius’ evocation of Finnish legend En Saga (A Saga) emerges from freezing mists of swirling strings and growling brass. It’s as darkly beautiful as a northern winter.

Chief Conductor Robertson takes us on a wild trip in Berlioz’s semi-autobiographical hallucination, Symphonie fantastique. The delirious artist chases his beloved through dreams, ballrooms, the countryside, his own beheading and a witches’ sabbath. Berlioz promised to ‘stagger the world’ with this symphony, and he delivered: this is music of pure sensation.

Presented as part of the Sydney Symphony’s Keys to the City Festival. Experience the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in performance at the ICC Darling Harbour Theatre.
