Sylvain Cambreling, having just conducted one of Messiaen’s greatest symphonic pieces, ‎presents a programme of contrasting yet clearly linked works, those that reflect the sincerity ‎of their composer’s writing.‎

Berlioz, encapsulating the effort and enthusiasm of youth, formed the idea for a “fantastic ‎symphony” portraying an episode in the life of an artist; the result was a revolutionary and ‎spectacular masterpiece.‎
The French composer was a pioneer, not only in the development of the symphonic poem, ‎but also orchestration, drawing on resources and colours unthinkable at the time. Beethoven ‎went to Vienna as a pianist and composer, and once he’d earned a reputation in both ‎disciplines; he began composing, which was his real passion. The premier of Concerto No. 4 ‎surprised everyone and it was also Beethoven’s last public appearance as a soloist. The ‎programme opens with Messiaen’s symphonic meditation, one of his first orchestral works, ‎in which he transforms his deep spiritual thoughts into music.‎
