Scott Jackson Wiley, Conductor

Berlioz –Les Nuits d’été (Summer Nights), op. 7

Berlioz – Symphonie fantastique

The poems of Théophile Gautier serve as the text for Les Nuits d’été of Hector Berlioz. Deeply immersed in the great literary writings of his time, Berlioz was often inspired by literature in his compositions. In the Symphonie fantastique Berlioz portrays the longings of a lover and terrifying hallucinations in what in arguably the greatest of all ninteenth century tone poems. The virtuoso demands of the Symphonie Fantastique were a central force in the creation of the modern symphonic orchestra.
