London Philharmonic Orchestra 20/21

Symphonie Fantastique

Berlioz’ symphony opens with a young musician afflicted by the sickness of spirit, a vagueness of passions. The musician sees a woman who unites the charms of all his imagination had been dreaming of. The vision prompts the work’s overriding musical idea, an idée fixe, which will return at various points in the drama.
