The Symphonie fantastique is an emblematic work of the orchestral repertoire. She is also one of those who made the most of ink, because of its success and its undeniable originality.
Faced with a work under the sign of impetuosity that overflows with momentum and imagination, the detailed analysis allows us to measure the true richness of this score where a whole host of opposing forces takes shape.
