Sir Andrew + Symphonie Fantastique

From cackling witches and crashing guillotines to opium-fuelled fantasy and a rollicking ending to wake the dead, Berlioz’s visionary, hell-bent masterpiece is classical music’s wildest trip. Written expressly for the talents of charismatic Scottish superstar Nicola Benedetti—who won a 2019 GRAMMY® for her recording of it—jazz legend Wynton Marsalis’s concerto is an irresistible fusion of blues, ragtime, and foot-stomping fiddle that’s guaranteed to bring down the house. (Pictured: Sir Andrew Davis, TSO Conductor Laureate)

This concert is available in the Thursday 2 and Saturday 3 subscription series.
