Hector Berlioz

Roméo et Juliette, op. 17

Duration: 1:40 without intermission

Grammy award-winning American conductor John Nelson is one of the unequivocal names of modern-day music and is considered an authority on the interpretation of the works of Hector Berlioz. His full recording (2017) of Berlioz’s Les Troyens earned him the highest praise, and he is now returning to the Grand Auditorium for a much-anticipated reading of Romeo and Juliet, at the head of the Gulbenkian Choir and Orchestra. About Berlioz’s music, the conductor says that it continues to sound new, “surprising us at every inflection with an unspeakable beauty”.
