Paganini: Violin Concerto No. 1 Listen Now
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique Listen Now

Violinist Ray Chen brings his extraordinary talents to the concerto by Paganini, a consummate showman whose works of astounding virtuosity and flashy style lead to rumors he had sold his soul! And if that isn’t enough, 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 pyrotechnic program.
