Copland Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra
Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique
Legend has it that Hector Berlioz wrote his Symphonie Fantastique under the influence of opium, while recovering from the heartache of being spurned by an actress who didn’t return his love letters.
This imaginative orchestral work tells the story of an artist who dreams of chasing the love of his life across a landscape of bizarre scenes, from a royal ball to a witches’ sabbath! If you like music that paints pictures in your mind, you will love this concert. Also featured is Copland’s Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra performed by the talented Alessandro Carbonare and Elena Kats-Chernin’s Mythic, a musical journey into a mythical cave.
