Pre-concert lecture, “The Drama of Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique,” by Peter Bloom at 6:45 in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse

Pre-concert recital at 7:00 by Magali Mosnier, flute, and Xavier de Maistre, harp
Avery Fisher Hall
“Xavier de Maistre is a virtuoso of the highest order, profoundly musical and capable of realizing a remarkable range of nuance.”
Dramatic flair ignites the stage with Gluck and Berlioz, whose hallucinatory Symphonie fantastique chronicles obsession and despair over unrequited love. Elegant tones of harp and flute help temper the flames in Mozart’s classic Concerto.
There is no late seating.
This performance is approximately two hours and five minutes with one intermission.
