HSO Evenings Part II – Symphonie Fantastique: Pipe Dreams and Obsessions
Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique is a piece both of its time yet timeless. Revolutionary in structure, scope, color, and story line, the work comes on the heels of the Napoleonic regime in a turbulent country. The piece is obsessive, outrageous, scary, and fun. Join Music Director and Conductor, Dr. Jed Gaylin (Peabody ’95), as we watch the Hopkins Symphony Orchestra’s performance and pause between movements to discuss the work and performance considerations. This program will be presented on Zoom. A Zoom link will be provided to registrants in advance of the program.
Please, join us for Part I in the series, Elgar’s Enigma Variations: On Friendship and Being Connected, on Thursday, September 24th, and for Part III, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9: A Choral Symphony Discussed, on Monday, November 9th. Please, register for each program individually.
