About

The conductor Sergiu Celibidache was a legend in his own lifetime, mesmerizing orchestras with his intensity and brilliance, both in rehearsals and in performances Ė which were always conducted from memory. In this recording, he takes on Berlioz's passionate autobiographical monument to obsessive and unrequited love.
 
The Celibidache Symphonic Series celebrates the historic release on DVD of rare footage of the few performances ever recorded for television - Celibidache conducting Berliozís Symphony Fantastique with the Orchestra Sinfonica di Torino della RAI in this 1969 Turin recording.
 
RAI's historic black and white master is faithfully restored for this release, with digitally re-mastered 2-track mono. A 32-page booklet in three languages is included, with a newly-commissioned essay from Misha Donat on the genius of Celibidache.
