Jonathan Tilbrook, conductor Carlos CHÁVEZ Symphony No.2 (Sinfonía India) BERLIOZ Symphonie fantastique One of Mexico’s most significant 20th century composers, Carlos Chavez shared similar interests with his artist compatriots during the Mexican Revolution, namely exploration and celebration of his country’s indigenous roots. His Sinfonía India written in 1935 is energetic, rhythmically complex nd uses an array of percussion inspired by Mexican folk music. Revolutionary in its time, and to this day a work both startling and disturbing, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique was in part a highly individual response to the symphonic legacy of Beethoven, as well as a radical statement from one of the most compelling musical personalities of the nineteenth century. The concert finishes at approximately 9pm
