Summer Special: Symphonie fantastique

An old favorite to enjoy in the Summer Concert Hall
Berlioz’ wondrous Symphonie fantastique like you’ve never heard it – with huge bells specially made for the work.

French conductor Lionel Bringuier conducts one of the most magnificent pieces in the repertoire: Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique from 1830. A revolutionary work which blends inventive orchestral sounds with the expressions of a desperate, emotional artist. The huge bells that can be seen and heard in this recording were especially made for the Gothenburg Symphony a few years ago and give the reading a unique, authoritative sound picture.

Lionel Bringuier has achieved rapid international acclaim and in 2014 became the Music Director of the illustrious Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich. It is as if Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, were made for him, just as the breathtaking Helix by his friend and colleague, Esa-Pekka Salonen, performed in the same concert this evening.
