Join conductor and host Joshua Weilerstein as we take a deep dive into the Ultimate Symphonic Thrill Ride, Berlioz's hallucinogenic Symphonie Fantastique. We're talking opium habits of the 1830's, Berlioz's passionate love affairs, and of course, all about the music that nearly caused a riot at its first performance. This is the second to last re-broadcast before the debut of Season 2 in just TWO WEEKS! Thanks so much for listening!
