More than 150 years before Ozzy Osborne and Alice Cooper, Romantic composer Hector Berlioz was writing music about witches, guillotines and bizarre drug-induced hallucinations. Now the Chicago Symphony Orchestra plays his masterpiece, Symphonie fantastique, a phantasmagorical adventure that still shocks and amazes. Written to impress an Irish actress who would later become his wife, Berlioz held back nothing in this intense display of genius. After the concert, join the Beyond the Score creative team for a Q&A about this sensational work that inspired the score to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. Learn More

Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Sir Mark Elder, conductor
Elena Urioste, violin
Tippett: Concerto for Double String Orchestra
Vaughan Williams: The Lark Ascending
Elgar: Symphony No. 2
Three of England's most important composers are featured in this delightful program, led by fellow countryman Sir Mark Elder. Both Vaughan Williams and Elgar were inspired by poetry while composing these famous works, and Tippett's concerto (his first major work) was highly influenced by the music of Beethoven.
About the Ticket Supplier: Chicago Symphony Orchestra
The CSO is a musical force in Chicago and around the world with more than 150 performances and events a year, 107 talented musicians, two internationally renowned conductors, and two award-winning composers-in-residence.
The central mission of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association is to present classical music through the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to Chicago, national and international audiences.
The mission is supported by four mutually reinforcing elements: artistic excellence (continued international preeminence in the field of orchestral excellence), audience development (leading audience development initiatives), education (superior education and community programs) and financial stability (fiscal responsibility for long-term stability).
In November 2008, the CSO was ranked the best U.S. orchestra by Gramophone magazine.
