Concert Description

"Berlioz tells it like it is. You take a trip; you wind up screaming at your own funeral." - Leonard Bernstein

Part symphony, part psychedelic episode, Berlioz guides us through encounters with budding passion, festive parties, the despair of unrequited love, and ultimately, execution and hideous revelries ushering us into the underworld. The lines between reality and hallucination blur among the sounds of pleading winds, relentless brass, and foreboding percussion.
