Music for Your Wildest Dreams

Conductor Jaime Martín
Soloist Alessandro Carbonare, Clarinet

Kats-Chernin Mythic 
Copland Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra
Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique

Be uplifted by Copland’s breezy concerto commissioned by Benny Goodman. Enjoy the clarinet’s lyrical power in the first movement and the zesty fusion of jazzy and Latin American elements in the second. Kats-Chernin’s broodingMythicsoon builds to a pulsing exuberance of irresistible appeal. Symphonie Fantastiquewas a trailblazer because of its innovative orchestration and cinematic narrative. A heartbroken artist imbibes opium and in his inebriation observes his own execution. After his death, ghouls, witches and wizards surround him. In ‘March to the Scaffold’, listen for the whopping chord symbolising the executioner’s fatal blow a moment before the end.
