Dreams, Witches and Visions.

Two dream-filled French works frame a world premiere conducted by one of the stars of the new generation, Fabien Gabel. Inspired by unrequited romantic love, Berlioz’s radical masterpiece Symphonie fantastique is full of passions, dreams and phantoms – a lovesick musician’s hallucinatory fantasies. Astonishingly modern and revolutionary at its premiere in 1830, it is still breathtaking nearly 200 years later. Multi award-winner James Ledger is one of Australia’s finest composers. His new Viola Concerto is his 11th work to be premiered by WASO and was composed especially for one of Australia’s greatest musicians, Brett Dean, himself an acclaimed composer, soloist and former member of the Berlin Philharmonic.
