About the Program

An iridescent flute solo sets Debussy’s impressionist masterpiece in motion.

Composed during the height of Viennese classicism, Albrechtsberger’s trombone concerto gives an unusually virtuosic role to an instrument that rarely takes center stage.

Berlioz’s orchestral tour de force tells the story of a young artist shattered by unrequited love and his hallucinations of obsession and despair.
