Hector Berlioz was certainly one of the most original and innovative musicians of his day: with his Symphonie fantastique, he matured into a pioneer of programme music, gave a new meaning to the term orchestration, and introduced the concept of the ‘idée fixe’. Partly thanks to its recurring musical motif, which gives voice to the theme of love in the story, his Symphonie fantastique is one of the most dramatic and exciting works of the nineteenth century repertoire.
