    Limited Edition 8CD + DVD Box Set!

    Brought together for the first time for the 150th anniversary of the Berlioz' death, Decca presents this 8CD+1DVD original jacket set of the ground-breaking Philips recordings.

    The Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique under the leadership of John Eliot Gardiner exemplifies the highest level of quality of period instrument performance practice to this day. John Eliot and his orchestra remain the leading internationally recognised interpreters of Berlioz' works with their performances vividly presenting the composer's delight in complex rhythmic interplay, and their period instruments revealing a much wider range of sonorities, creating a sense of freshness and discovery.

    "Gardiner's Symphonie fantastique is of endless fascination and enjoyment... he brings out the daring originality of Berlioz's visionary inspiration and draws hugely spirited, yet refined playing from his period-instrument band. Exemplary sound and balance, too." Gramophone


    Includes the world premiere recording and Grammy Award-winning Messe solenelle alongside  the key orchestral works Symphonie Fantastique, Harold in Italy and the "dramatic symphony" Roméo et Juliette and the "dramatic legend" La Damnation de Faust.

    The set is accompanied by performances on DVD of Symphonie Fantastique (from the same hall in which it was premiered in 1830) and the Messe solennelle from Westminster Cathedral 1992 (the first performance of this large-scale Mass for 150 years).
