Les Siecles


Francois-Xavier Roth


Drawing on various themes dear to the early Romantic movement of the 1820s, Symphonie fantastique broke all the rules of classical symphonic form. This new recording from François-Xavier Roth and Les Siècles benefits from a close study of the composer’s autograph score and the unique timbres of period instruments, including the church bell of the composer's hometown, La-Côte Saint-André. The symphony incorporates passages from Les Francs-Juges, an early operatic effort Berlioz left unfinished. Only the Overture survives, and it makes for a perfect pairing here.
