Notes & Reviews:

Drawing on the adventures of Byron's Childe Harold and the composer's own Italian experiences as a Prix de Rome winner, Harold en Italie was intended for the great violinist Paganini who, having initially rejected the work, later repented, giving it his highest praise. The brilliant concert overtures Benvenuto Cellini and Le carnaval romain are among Berlioz's most popular works. Quickly taken up by several celebrated violinists of the time, the elegant Rêverie et Caprice is his only work for solo violin and orchestra. Leonard Slatkin's Lyon recording of Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique (8.572886) has been acclaimed as "quite simply one of the best on disc" by MusicWeb International.
