Return of a giant

Unknown28 August-2 September

A great privilege to be working once again with Sir Roger Norrington whose inspiring work with the OAE stretches back decades. Roger absolutely revels in the sounds and colours that these instruments make and in this programme – toured to Warsaw and Helsinki – the centrepiece was the Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique. Special instruments demanded in this work include E flat clarinet, cor anglais, ophecleides – a feast of musical colour expressing musical emotion laid bare. At least one of the instruments came out of a museum specially for the occasion.
