Houston Symphony presents Symphonie fantastique
From cackling witches and crashing guillotines to opium-fueled fantasy and a rollicking ending to wake the dead, Berlioz’s visionary Symphonie fantastique is classical music’s wildest ride - and it’s especially appropriate for Halloween weekend.
This program also features Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Symphonic Variations on an African Air, based on the African American spiritual "I’m Troubled in Mind." Acclaimed conductor Jader Bignamini, Music Director of the Detroit Symphony, leads the orchestra.
The Saturday performance will be available to livestream.
