Symphonie Fantastique

Berlioz | Lavandier

Hector Berlioz (1903-1869)
Symphonie fantastique op. 14
Free adaptation by Arthur Lavandier (2013)

Commissioned in 2013 by Bruno Messina for the closing concert of the Berlioz Festival, this free adaptation of the Symphonie Fantastique tells the story of Le Balcon’s artistic adventure. The bonds with french composer Arthur Lavandier leads us to the key elements of our collective: instrumentation, conversation between sound and music, and between centuries of written music. This Symphonie Fantastique is a transcription, a re-orchestration and an arrangement. It tells the story of the XXIst century orchestra.
