Tasmania Symphony Orchestra - Symphonie Fantastique
Fantastic in every sense, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique presents the most extravagant of Romantic fantasies – a ‘narrative’ of unrequited love, opium dreams, murder, execution and a witches’ sabbath. To say that this monumental work is over the top is to state the obvious. Brahms’s haunting Four Serious Songs are respectfully and imaginatively orchestrated and enlarged by Detlev Glanert in his Four Preludes and Serious Songs. Teddy Tahu Rhodes has made this work his own, having performed and recorded it with the TSO to great acclaim. See Teddy in action, bask in his aura and be moved by his voice.
