Presented by:

Beethoven
Symphony No. 5 in C minor 33'

Berlioz
Symphonie fantastique 54'

Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique
Sir John Eliot Gardiner
conductor

Sir John Eliot Gardiner's second appearance of the season showcases the work of the conductor's other period-instrument ensemble – the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, specialists in 19th- and 20th-century repertoire.

Gardiner's brisk and brilliant take on Beethoven's Fifth Symphony promises to find fresh energy within a familiar work – a Classical curtain-raiser to Berlioz's extravagant Symphonie fantastique, the height of Romantic excess, with its quasi-cinematic storytelling and vivid, ghoulish soundscapes.
