Berlioz: Symphonie Funebre Et Triomphale - Philips - SAL 3788

WAS £7.99 £3.99

Product description

Berlioz, the composer responsible for such culturally popular pieces as 'Romeo et Juliet' and 'La Damnation de Faust', whose work was known not only for it's eloquent and harrowing reflections on human nature, on anguish and free will. But also, for a love of grandeur, for vivid and effective performance, which in a way both melodramatic, yet potent and captivating, showcased emotion on an epic and fascinating scale.
The 'Symphonie Funebre et Triomphale' was commissioned by the French minister of the interior in 1840, to commemorate the French Revolution. To this end the music is headily patriotic and the tone, that of a great, celebratory piece dedicated to the great men of France, compliments succinctly the flourishing vast and epic ambitions of Berlioz. Indeed, the piece was a great success and as well as giving ample colour to the commemoration itself, has been recorded in history as one of the most competent and masterful large scale works by famous composers. Berlioz himself has probably given it the most fitting description, calling it his "indestructible warhorse."
The vinyl is inn good condition with some dust. The box is in good condition, some minor scuffing on the sides.
