Dayton Philharmonic 2022–2023 Masterworks Series - Symphonie fantastique and Vadim Gluzman - Schuster Center, downtown Dayton.
Berlioz’s passion-propelled Symphonie fantastique—dazzling with fiery orchestral colors and effects—follows the love-sick hero’s drug-induced visions to a glittering ball, a scaffold, and a demonic Witches’ Sabbath with the Dies irae pounding out a hair-raising theme amid orgiastic tumult. Emotions also run high in Shostakovich’s Concerto, whose sonorities range from quiet contemplation to the most spectacular cadenza you’re ever likely to witness, to a frenzied finale, guaranteed to leave you profoundly moved. Antoine Clark (“led from the podium with balletic poise.” ~ Chicago Tribune), a rising star among young American conductors, makes his Dayton debut.
