Orchestre Lamoureux, Paris, Igor Markevitch Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

Overview:
A celebrated work, according to the composer's own detailed programme, Berlioz's symphony aimed to describe the tortured dreams of a sensitive artist in lovesick despair who takes an overdose of opium and becomes haunted by visions of an unattainable woman. In the course of five movements, he first tempers his depression, volcanic love and jealous rages through religious consolation; encounters her at a festive ball; seeks solace wandering in the countryside only to have her disrupt his idyll; is condemned and guillotined for murdering her; and finally sees his funeral plummet into a witches' desecration of the Sabbath which she leads to a climactic orgy. Original recording remastered on 180gm vinyl.
