Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique - La Marseillaise
"The composer's intention has been to develop various episodes in the life of an artist, in so far as they lend themselves to musical treatment. As the work cannot rely on the assistance of speech, the plan of the instrumental drama needs to be set out in advance. The following programme must therefore be considered as the spoken text of an opera, which serves to introduce musical movements and to motivate their character and expression."
Track Listing: La Marseillaise (arranged by Berlioz); Symphonie Fantasique.
Personnel: Placido Domingo: tenor voice; Chicago Symphony Chorus, Duaine Wolfe; Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
