Hector Berlioz, The Symphonie Fantastique

Discovering Masterpieces of Classical Music

Experience and enjoy, in a completely new way, the great works of classical music, from the Baroque to the modern period, thanks to a new series of audio-visual concert guides, "Masterpieces of Classical Music."

Berlioz' Fantastic Symphony is widely regarded as one of the most important and representative pieces of the early Romantic period. Leonard Bernstein once called it "the first musical expedition into psychedelia" because of its hallucinatory and dream-like nature. The German musicologist Wulf Konold describes the idea behind and the realization of this fascinating work.
