Synopsis

Classical music expert Michael Tilson Thomas headlines this documentary examination of composer Hector Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique. Thomas establishes the fact that the composition almost singlehandedly defined the Romantic movement within the classical repertoire, with its overwhelming outpouring of emotion. He also documents the original source of inspiration for the work: Berlioz's obsessive desire to win the heart of an actress. As an added bonus, the program features a full concert performance of the work by The San Francisco Symphony. ~ Nathan Southern
