Andris Nelsons conducts the “Symphonie fantastique”

Fanatical love, drug rapture, execution: there’s hardly an extreme experience that Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique leaves out. At the same time, the feverish expressivity is based on a cleverly calculated use of a tremendously large orchestra. In addition, Andris Nelsons and the Berliner Philharmoniker are presenting Debussy’s dreamy Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune and Edgard Varèse’s orchestral work Arcana, which conjures up cosmic forces, on this French programme.
