Berlioz: Symphony Fantastique


Symphony Fantastique
Berlioz: Symphony Fantastique Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique

Just about everybody knows the March to the Scaffold, but the entire work is very interesting. The Symphony is meant to tell the story of a man who finds his love and looses her.

This recording is the original 1830 orchestration and is played on period instruments.
