CLASSICAL THURSDAYS
Symphonie Fantastique


Yan Pascal Tortelier, conductor
Yuja Wang, piano

Yardumian: Armenian Suite
Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No. 1
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique

Yan Pascal Tortelier conducts one of the most influential, enduring and celebrated of all classical masterworks, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique. Altogether new in its time, Symphonie fantastique describes the tortured dreams of a sensitive artist in lovesick despair, who takes an overdose of opium and becomes haunted by visions of an unattainable woman. Also on the program is Richard Yardumian’s Armenian Suite, echoing influences of Armenian folk songs, and young piano sensation Yuja Wang performing Prokofiev’s first piano concerto.
