Fantastique!

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique began as a story of unrequited love.

It became: well, the name says it all, really; a sprawling, opium-fuelled phantasmagoria of guillotines, witchcraft and star-crossed romance, scored for a supersized orchestra that’ll leave your ears tingling for days.

But then this concert is all about extremes: from the lush, iridescent spirituality of Messiaen’s Hymne to a piano concerto like no other.

Gounod wrote this delightful one-off for a grand piano equipped with the pedals of an organ: in the hands (and feet) of pedal-piano virtuoso Roberto Prosseda it promises to look as extraordinary as it sounds.
