Led by principal guest conductor Gianandrea Noseda, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra's Houston program will feature Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, which, through its movements, tells the story of an artist's self-destructive passion for a beautiful woman. As the symphony progresses, it describes his obsession and dreams, tantrums and moments of tenderness, and visions of suicide and murder, ecstasy and despair.

Other works on the program are Faure's Pelléas et Mélisande Suite, and Ravel's Ma Mère l'Oye (Mother Goose) Suite and Daphnis et Chloé Suite No. 2.

The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra acts as a cultural ambassador for the State of Israel when touring the United States. The 2014 tour comes during the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra's 78th season, which has been rich in collaboration, as well as with performances in the newly renovated Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv.
