    HECTOR BERLIOZ
    Symphonie fantastique

    Our final program of the year embarks on a whirlwind tour of life, love, death and dreams. From joy to whimsy and irony, Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes explore the many facets of love, and will bring a smile to your face as you sway to the irrepressibly catchy waltz rhythms.

    Enjoy a rare performance of Brahms’ lesser-known choral work, Nänie. Written to commemorate the death of a friend, this musical memorial truly radiates with compassion.

    Then, it’s an abrupt shift from the sublime to the macabre. A perennial favorite, Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique has an alchemy all its own, combining obsession, ecstasy, passion, and delirium into a gripping musical tale that blazes bright.
