Paavo Järvi conducts the “Symphonie fantastique”

Romanticism was not only an epoch of sensibility, but also of radical concepts. No work shows this more clearly than Hector Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique. It portrays a drug-induced frenzy, a murder of passion, an execution and a witch’s Sabbath. No less exciting is Berlioz’ sound world: excessive, glaring, brutal – and then again enchantingly graceful. Paavo Järvi also conducts the world premiere of a horn concerto by Hans Abrahamsen. The soloist is Stefan Dohr.
