Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra under Sir Andrew Davis here perform seven dazzling orchestral overtures by Hector Berlioz, a composer who excelled in blending literary and musical elements into highly energetic and personal creations. The overtures are widely varied in mood, as are the operas from which they were drawn.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Sir Andrew Davis is clearly a sympathetic and committed Berliozian. Waverley starts out well.
