Mariss Jansons direction
Mariss Jansons and the Vienna Philharmonic perform a must-hear Fantastique.
Schumann Symphony No. 1 op. 38 « Spring »
Berlioz Symphonie fantastique op. 14
Almost twenty years ago, the Vienna Philharmonic performed the Symphonie fantastique by Berlioz here. At the time, the verdict was that we had never heard it performed in this way, with such density and power, yet such a wealth of fine detail, with Simon Rattle wielding the baton for the Viennese orchestra. It is with mounting anticipation, therefore, that we wait to hear this key work from the French repertoire, heightened on this occasion by the presence of the hugely talented Mariss Jansons. Perhaps we will experience another fresh interpretation of the Symphonie Fantastique.
