ABOUT THIS CONCERT
It shocked Parisian audiences in 1830, and almost 200 years later, Berlioz’ boundary-pushing, mind-stretching masterpiece remains classical music’s wildest ride. Enter a world where witches shriek, severed heads roll and imagination knows no limit when Karina Canellakis conducts Symphonie fantastique, and feel the lyrical beauty and lively rhythms of Bruch’s treasured masterpiece, featuring the “stunning” (Chicago Tribune) Simone Lamsma.
