Usually ships within 1-3 days
A new way of experiencing and enjoying the great works of music from the Baroque to the Modern Period - thanks to a new educational series of audio-visual concert guides, Introducing Masterpieces of Classical Music. Each release includes extensive documentation and a complete performance of the work or works in question. Famous masterpieces from the standard repertoire of the greatest international orchestras are brought closer to the viewer through first class concert broadcasts (Berliner Philharmoniker, Wiener Philharmoniker, Gewandhaus Orchester...) in a timely visual style. Berlioz'"Fantastic Symphony" is widely regarded as one of the most important and representative pieces of the early Romantic period. Leonard Bernstein once called it"the first musical expedition into psychedelia" because of its hallucinatory and dream-like nature. The German musicologist Wulf Konold describes the idea behind and the realization of this fascinating work.
