This five-movement symphony is the first narrative piece of musical composition in the proper sense of the word. In the Symphonie fantastique, the trauma of a hypersensitive ego at loss with himself and his unrequited love is dealt with musically. Berlioz gave a scenic specification of the individual phases of the partly regressive development of this ego, which ends in complete loss of self: (I) “Dreams, Passions”, (II) “A ball”, (III) “Scene in the Country”, (IV) “March to the Scaffold”, and (V) “Dream of a Witches’ Sabbath”. It is a tragic interplay of unreal reality and the reality of delusional excesses.

In his conception of Lélio, Berlioz initially strove for a maximum of literarization. Lélio’s “experience” is that of diversity; its “story” consists in preserving both this diversity and tonal colourfulness as a series of experiences. If Berlioz called both compositions, the Symphonie fantastique and Le Retour à la vie, an Épisode de la vie d’un artiste, then he considered this “episode” as the epitome of an “idée musicale romantique”. At the same time this means that Berlioz considered romanticism to be something consisting of episodic soul experiences, immersed in hues of minor.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
