Notes & Reviews:

After Decca's best-selling Beethoven For All campaign and Barenboim's Olympic appearance comes a celebration of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra's 10th anniversary in a stunning Berlioz recording from the BBC Proms. This recording comes from WEDO's 2009 Prom, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the West Eastern Divan Orchestra and marking a return to the roots of the orchestra's conception in Weimar - a place where Liszt championed the works of Berlioz. The album contains Berlioz's revolutionary Symphonie Fantastique, alongside Liszt's colorful Les Preludes. These fiery pieces of music, charged with emotion, are recorded live, and performed with a thrilling, youthful energy by one of the world's leading youth orchestras. This recording celebrates Decca's continued relationship with Maestro Barenboim and constitutes a follow up to Barenboim & Decca's best-selling Beethoven For All project, as WEDO and Barenboim continue to break down political and cultural barriers and bring music to new audiences.
