Masterpiece 2

Some of history’s most profound musical masterpieces have been inspired by a hero’s journey from light to darkness, love and loss, with it encompassing all of life’s beauty and horror. These themes play out in magnificent form in Berlioz’s monumental “Symphonie Fantastique” and Grieg’s enchanting Piano Concerto. Buckle your seat belts, these stories are truly epic!
