Berlioz La damnation de Faust

Is it an opera? Or a work for the concert hall? Hector Berlioz had no such restricting thoughts when he wrote his smouldering music drama La Damnation de Faust, and he made highly original choices of instrumentation as well. Along with a star-studded cast Gergiev shows what a revolutionary composer Berlioz was and how much influence his colourful instrumentation had on later French composers.
