Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

Symphonie Fantastique!

Dances of Galánta
Violin Concerto No.1
Symphonie Fantastique
Vasily Petrenko
Baiba Skride

All you need is love! Hector Berlioz couldn’t get the girl of his dreams. So – as you do – he wrote her a symphony: a huge, opium-fuelled riot of passions, nightmares and guillotines (well, you can’t have a good revolution without one). Fantastique by name, fantastic by nature, it’s one of those pieces that you’ve simply got to hear live – and that goes double for Szymanowski’s shimmering dreamscape of the First Violin Concerto, especially when performed by the incomparable Baiba Skride. Vasily Petrenko gets the party started Hungarian-style: in a blaze of fiddles.
