Symphonie fantastique

Symphonic

January 31 - February 2, 2020

Dates

Location

Bass Performance Hall

Duration

Approximately 2 hours, including a 20 minute intermission

Overview

Watch FWSO Principal Cellist Allan Steele shine in Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, which reflect Tchaikovsky’s adoration of the music of Mozart, a composer he revered above all, and they present a dazzling package of virtuoso cello-writing. Lili Boulanger’s D’un matin de printemps will delight with its playful twists and turns. And Berlioz’s epic Symphonie fantastique will tell the story of an artist's self-destructive passion for a beautiful woman.

Featured Artists

Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra
Yaniv Dinur, Conductor
Allan Steele, Cello

"Dinur and the orchestra captured the narrative flow of the programmatic piece [Shostakovich Symphony No. 12] in a completely committed performance. They moved from long, quiet, introspective sections of heartfelt music-making, to equally lengthy, deeply stirring sections of big, bold—sometimes stunningly so—sound, giving the symphony shape, meaning and a mesmerizing performance."
