Clifford Curzon (piano). BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Leslie Heward
Berlioz's Fantastic Symphony is concerned with the dreams of a young musician who has tried to poison himself with opium. The work is built on a motto theme, an idee fixe which pursues the dreamer everywhere. The first movement represents all the bewildering tumult of heart of one who has fallen madly in love. The second is a ball where he meets his beloved, and the third describes a summer evening in the country. In the fourth he dreams that he has murdered his beloved, and is being marched to the scaffold, and the fifth is a very orgy of terror-a witches' sabbath in which the beloved herself appears, horribly transformed.
This fantastic story may add a certain interest to the music, but Berlioz himself said he hoped that the music would be listened to on its own merits irrespective of any dramatic aim.
