Event Description

Witches, ghouls, and ghosts abound in this wonderfully wicked concert led by Esa-Pekka Salonen. Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique paints scenes of lavish beauty and ghastly visions, while pianist Bertrand Chamayou takes on the devilish charm of Franz Liszt’s Totentanz. Listen for the frightful sounds of supernatural beings as they dance deep into the night in Modest Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain.
