The Salt Lake Symphony opens their 44th season with Cesar Franck’s chilling, rarely performed "Le Chasseur Maudit" (The  Accursed Huntsman) and the monumental "Symphonie Fantastique" by Hector Berlioz

Beware the idee fixe! Berlioz broke the mold and changed history  with his monumental score to Symphonie Fantastique. More than merely  a big work with massive forces, it’s a deeply personal vision of  both love and obsession that touches from every corner of the mind,  with a final stop in an imagined Hell of the artist’s own devices.  Berlioz’s inventive compositional style and thrilling music set the  standard for most of the  programmatic music that followed in the  19th century, especially where a touch of the supernatural was  involved. We open the program with one of those very pieces he  influenced, Cesar Franck’s rarely performed Le Chasseur maudit (The  Accursed Huntsman). It’s a thrilling, and slightly chilling, way to  open our 44th season that we know you will love to death!
