  1. Hymne (au Saint Sacrement), for orchestra - Olivier Messiaen
  2. Concerto for pedal piano and orchestra - Charles Gounod
  3. Symphonie fantastique Op 14 - Hector Berlioz

Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique began as a story of unrequited love. It became: well, the name says it all, really – a sprawling, opium-fuelled phantasmagoria filled with guillotines, witchcraft and star-crossed romance, and scored for a supersized orchestra that’ll leave your ears tingling for days. But then this concert is all about extremes: from the lush, iridescent spirituality of Messiaen’s Hymne to a piano concerto like no other. Gounod wrote this delightful one-off for a grand piano equipped with the pedals of an organ: in the hands (and feet) of pedal-piano virtuoso Roberto Prosseda it will look as extraordinary as it sounds.
