Reviews:

 

Classical Source:

***** ‘an account in which phantasmagoria was fully realised, Berlioz’s visions brilliantly conveyed: a wonderful spectacle’

 

Bachtrack :

***** ‘a triumph, a wacky psychedelic ride. Truly Berlioz on acid.’

 

The Guardian:

**** ‘they wove a deft character sketch of the French composer into a rip-roaring performance of his work...as vivid to the ear as it was to the eye’
