Program

Interactive introduction by host Martin Baai (partly in Dutch)
Berlioz | Symphonie fantastique conducted by Vasily Petrenko

A Core Classics evening is a combination of going out, and getting acquainted with live classical music in a spectacular way.

Imagine entering De Doelen. The bar is open for a drink. Then, an inspiring host ushers you into the work, telling you what it is that makes the music zo exceptional.* You will know where to pay attention to during the concert in the Main Hall, making your listening experience even more intense. About an hour of masterly joy later – a mind blowing experience allowing you to both feel and hear the music -, the bar will open again: just stay and chill.

About the symphony

Symphonie fantastique tells the story of an artist and the attempts to conquer his dream woman. When love remains unanswered, the protagonist uses opium to repress his love sorrow. The hallucinations that follow lead to a drama full of violence and death. This story and the revolutionary way in which Berlioz uses the orchestra to tell his ideas, makes this an unique symphony. A piece that you must have heard live!
