Hector Berlioz

The Damnation of Faust, op. 24

Hannu Lintu begins his second season as Principal Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra with one of Berlioz’s most striking and grandiose creations, The Damnation of Faust. Captivated by Goethe’s tragic poem, Berlioz wrote in his memoirs how much “this marvellous work” had fascinated him from the very first page. “I couldn’t put the book down, I read it constantly, during meals, in the theatre, in the streets and everywhere.” That fascination can be heard in this performance shared with the Gulbenkian Choir and a quartet of leading soloists.
