Pierre Boulez: Livre pour cordes
Yan Maresz: Répliques
Hector Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique


In 1830 the ambitious young composer Hector Berlioz dulled his lovesick pains with a pipeful of opium and undertook an imaginary journey in quest of his beloved. His visions of boisterous celebrations, a fateful scaffold and a witches’ sabbath found expression in one of the finest symphonies ever composed. The “Symphonie fantastique” is every conductor’s dream.
