Frank Walkabout: Concerto for Orchestra
Berlioz Symphonie fantastique

Program Notes

Yannick and the Orchestra explore the transcendent power of stories through the works of Composer-in-Residence Gabriela Lena Frank and Hector Berlioz. Frank's Walkabout is inspired by travels to her mother's homeland of Peru. Inspired by his own life, Hector Berlioz depicts the drama of an artist’s self-destructive passion through five epic movements in his Symphonie fantastique. From the first flitting feelings of love to opium-inspired visions of the protagonist’s demise, it is a masterpiece brimming with intensity.
