Symphonie Fantastique

2018 EA Concert

calendar   Thursday, Feb. 1 | Reception 7 p.m. | Performance 8 p.m | Ingram Hall

Vanderbilt University Orchestra
Robin Fountain, conductor

The orchestra takes on French composer Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, an important masterwork of the Romantic era, circa 1830. The five-movement epic relates the tale of an artist gifted with a lively imagination and driven to the depths of despair through his unrequited obsession with a beautiful woman.

He remembers first the uneasiness of spirit, the indefinable passion, the melancholy, the aimless joys he felt even before seeing his beloved; then the explosive love she suddenly inspired in him, his delirious anguish, his fits of jealous fury, his returns of tenderness, his religious consolations.

Reception attendees can enter a drawing for free tickets to a Nashville Symphony Classic Series Concert. (must be present to win)
