Paganini: Violin Concerto No. 1
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique BSO Podcast Part One: Part Two:
Violinist Ray Chen brings his extraordinary talents to the concerto by Paganini, a consummate showman whose works of astounding virtuosity and flashy style led to rumors he had sold his soul! Berlioz’s richly orchestrated Symphonie fantastique conjures a tale of obsessive love leading to madness, an opium dream and a dance with the Devil. French conductor Ludovic Morlot makes a welcome return for this imaginative program.
BSO Late Night: Join us in the lobby of the Meyerhoff for a Q&A session on Friday, April 7 with Ray Chen and Ludovic Morlot.
