Symphonie fantastique

Two jilted men and a case of mistaken identity come together for this concert! Both Mahler and Berlioz poured out their hearts in music following rejection and disappointment in their independent pursuits of two different actresses, while Brahms’ belief that he had written his noble set of variations on a hidden masterpiece by his great musical hero, Haydn, was sadly misplaced. This concert proves that even failure in life can’t keep a great composer down!
