Cinema for the ears: Hector Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique is one of the most passionate orchestral works of the 19th century. In the captivating sound language typical of the French composer, it tells of the excessive, unhappy love of an artist who experiences disturbing and grotesque situations: a drug frenzy, a murder of passion, an execution and a witches’ Sabbath. Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi performs Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique with the Berliner Philharmoniker. He also conducts the world premiere of the Horn Concerto by the Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen, whose music impresses listeners with his poetic and Romantic tone. The soloist is Stefan Dohr, principal horn with the Berliner Philharmoniker.
