Have you ever wondered what it would be like to visit a real classical music concert? Losing yourself in the timeless sounds of worldfamous composers? We’ve curated a special series just for you. These are must-hears! The classical bucketlist for this year and this year only. Get ready for: ‘The Romantic’ Berlioz.

Who is Berlioz?

One of the most important representatives of Romanticism, the emotionally charged style of the arts. He had a turbulent life. For instance: when he learned that his fancée Marie Moke married an older and richer ‘suiter’, he embarked on a wild journey from Rome to Paris packing two guns and a vile of poison planning to kill Marie, her suiter and himself. Luckily he managed his temper. He stayed in Nice for 20 days (the most beautiful of his life, according to him) and produced an awesome opera there: King Lear. And this is just a small slice of his life!

Symphonie Fantastique! 

Symphonie Fantastique is inspired by one of the great loves of his life, and also one of of the most unfortunate afairs. It took him seven (!!!) years for her to ‘accept’ him. What followed was a bitter and unhappy period. Anyway, the Symphonie Fantastique tells the story of an artist gifted with a lively imagination who poisons himself with opium in the depths of hopeless, unrequited love. Today you might say he swipes right and she swipes left. There are no lyrics, so the music ‘tells’ the narrative by lively symphonies. Symphonie Fantastique is considered one of the best symphonies of the 19th century French era.

What you can expect

Besides Symphonie Fantastique conducted by our chief-conductor Dmitri Liss, you'll hear the equal impressive piece Veni, Veni, Emmanuel by composer MacMillan. With young and upcoming percussionist Dominique Vleeshouwers. A real treat!
