I hadn’t planned on posting again so soon, but NPR gave me a reason:
I love how they annotated the actual video. They talk about some of the same things I do: theme, which instruments are highlighted, etc.
So enjoy a different sort of “bonus feature” than what I usually post. I love Symphonie Fantastique – there are some wicked clarinet parts in the last movement 🙂 I know somewhere I have a funny quote copied down about this piece, but darned if I know where it is (and Google hasn’t helped). If I find it, I’ll make sure to update this post.
