Symphonie Fantastique / November 18, 2023
Returning to the NMPhil stage is 2019 Olga Kern International Piano Competition winner Tetiana Shafran, performing Mozart’s tuneful Concerto No. 23. Drama abounds in French composer Édouard Lalo’s Overture from his opera Le roi d’Ys. The evening ends with the storied and programmatic Symphonie fantastique of Hector Berlioz—a tale of unrequited love and one of the most important works in the orchestral rep. Fabio Mechetti conducts.
