Berlioz’s Harold en Italie, based on the adventures of Byron’s Childe Harold, features the concert overtures ‘Benvenuto Cellini’ and ‘Le carnaval romain,’ which are among Berlioz’s most popular works, along with the elegant ‘Rêverie et Caprice’ which is his only work for solo violin and orchestra. 

This performance was recorded live in October 2013. Leonard Slatkin’s Lyon recording of Berlioz’s ‘Symphonie fantastique’ has been acclaimed as “quite simply one of the best on disc” by MusicWeb International.
