Prom 33: Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique

Sunday 9 August 2015 - 8:00 PM

John Elliot Gardiner © Sim Canetty Clarke

Approximate end time: 10pm

Presented by:

Symphony No. 5 in C minor 33'


Symphonie fantastique 54'

Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique
Sir John Eliot Gardiner

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.
