The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Berlioz paints a portrait of obsessive love with opium-fueled visions of cinematic realism, featuring haunting ballroom waltzes, a march to the guillotine, and maniacal witches’ dances. Opening the program, Debussy’s tone poem heaves with hazy sensuality, and violinist Carolin Widmann explores nature and love in works by Takemitsu and Chausson.

Debussy: Prelude to an Afternoon of a Faun
Takemitsu: Far Calls. Coming, Far!
Chausson: Poème
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique
