Synopsis

Album Description
"Norrington is a superb Berlioz conductor, who relishes every spark of invention in the score, every innovatory texture. Though he was conducting a modern-instrument orchestra, he applied some of the principles of period performance, making the strings ration their vibrato and the timpanists use hard sticks, and the textures never blurred ... this performance really came alive!" -- The GuardianAn authentic live performance of a seldom-heard masterpiece with world-famous Roger Norrington leading a talented young continental cast. Issued in celebration of the 2006 Berlioz Year at the Royal Albert Hall, London.
