Revolutionary. Passionate. Diabolical. Berlioz' Symphonie fantastique is all that — and so much more. A vivid musical description of love-turned-obsession-turned-ghoulish nightmare, Berlioz' masterpiece positively overflows with raw emotion and unabashed melodrama. Paired with Mozart’s turbulent and stormy Piano Concerto No. 24 and a world premiere by composer-in-residence Reena Esmail, Music Director Thomas Dausgaard kicks off the  Delta | Masterworks season with the kind of satisfying emotional wallop that only symphonic music can provide.
