With the release of this live recording of Hector Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, RCO Live celebrates the start of its collaboration with Daniele Gatti as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's seventh chief conductor on 9 September 2016. His unconventional take on this spectacular score evokes the astonishment audiences must have experienced at the time of the 1830 premiere. It is exactly this sense
Read more of surprise and freshness – founded on a thorough knowledge of the score – and the sheer joy of making music together that prompted the members of the RCO to choose Daniele Gatti as their new chief conductor.

 Amazing DVD Blu Ray December 20, 2016 By J. Pittock (LaSalle, ON) See All My Reviews "I purchased this Blu Ray Edition with the Royal Concertgebouw in Oct, 2016 and I do not regret spending my Canadian dollars. It is the most fascinating of my DVD's I have of Symphony music. The performance, the use of cameras, the sound is the best. I recommend this DVD Blu Ray edition 100%." Report Abuse
