Review from SLW

Description

Charles Dutoit, conductor

Gautier Capuçon, cello

San Francisco Symphony

Charles Dutoit conducts the San Francisco Symphony with music by two orchestral luminaries. Henri Dutilleux’s cello concerto Tout un monde lointain makes ingenious use of the orchestra’s kaleidoscope of timbres, while Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique demonstrates the groundbreaking approach to orchestration that provided a model for the late Romantic generation.
