Stockport Symphony Orchestra - Fantastique
As Bernstein had it: "Berlioz tells it like it is. You take a trip, you wind up screaming at your own funeral."
A journey through dreams, ballrooms, the countryside, a beheading and a witches’ Sabbath. Doesn’t get much more fantastic than that. Unless it’s the return of our 2019 International Young Musician Competition winner, Yue Yu. She wowed us with her Bartok in the final and after a short introductory fanfare returns to claim her prize tonight with Walton.
