Andrew Constantine, conductor
Stewart Goodyear, piano
Berlioz — Roméo et Juliette: Queen Mab Scherzo
Grieg — Piano Concerto in A minor, Op.16
Berlioz — Symphonie fantastique, Op.14
Berlioz's psychedelic symphonic portrait tells the tale of an artist's self-destructive passion for a beautiful woman. It is full of obsessions and dreams, ecstasy and despair. Grieg’s concerto was an instant success, a work of charm, teeming with vitality and perfect simplicity.
