LSO/Roth: Symphonie Fantastique

Barbican HallSilk Street, Londres, Greater London, EC2Y 8DS, Reino Unido

Severed heads, demonic orgies and obsessive love. Francois Xavier-Roth pairs Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique with another untamed imagination: the astonishing, experimental music of Edgard Varèse.

‘Convinced that his love is spurned, the artist poisons himself with opium …’ Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique is the musical head-trip to end all head-trips, a Technicolor phantasmagoria for an enormous orchestra. And French music specialist François-Xavier Roth has found its spiritual successor: the ear-tingling soundscapes of Edgard Varèse.

It’s an electrifying prospect: Roth’s award-winning recordings of French music have redefined the way we hear a great orchestra. And these are sonic showpieces unlike any others, whether Berlioz’s colossal, genre-bending symphonic spectacular, or Varèse’s pioneering adventure in percussion, Ionisation. Plus Arcana, an explosive, visionary sonic experiment that proves that dreamers can also be revolutionaries.
