Kindred Spirits Orchestra Season opening with "Symphonie fantastique" by Berlioz
Saturday, October 24, 2015 at 8:00 P.M.
Flato Markham Theatre for the Performing Arts Join Maestro Kristian Alexander while he leads the Kindred Spirits Orchestra in celebrating the first concert of the season. César Frank’s dark and haunting Le Chasseur Maudit paints the portrait of an accursed huntsman condemned to be pursued by demons for an eternity. Teenage sensation Anson Hui rises to the challenge of performing Beethoven’s vigorous Concerto for Piano No. 1. Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz, a truly programmatic work, dramatically tells the story of love, passion, despair, hallucination and death.
