Paris Conservatoire Orchestra Behind the mysterious title Symphonie Fantastique is to be found what was undoubtedly one of the most powerful musical compositions of its day. The highly controversial discussions which this autobiographical, extraordinary work provoked are quite understandable when one considers that Beethoven and Schubert had just put down their quills for the last time and that Wagner had only just left his childhood behind him. In commenting upon the daring cyclical structure of the work, one French music critic said "In Berlioz's Symphony we believe that we have seen the prelude to a revolution in instrumental music."
