BERLIOZ--THE STORY OF THE SYMPHONY: Sounds Magnificent
In Paris, on September 11, 1827, the composer Hector Berlioz fell madly in love with an Irish actress, Harriet Smithson. The intensity of his infatuation became inextricably tangled with a symphony he was to compose, a composition that broke new ground with the lavish virtuosity of its orchestration. Here Previn and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra perform the piece. 86 minutes.
