Spotify: Berlioz Playlist

Spotify: Berlioz Playlist


Spotify playlist of the basic works of Berlioz.

Included in the playlist are the following works:
Symphonie Fantastique – Mehta / NY Philharmonic
Harold in Italy РMunch / Primrose / Boston SO
Overtures – Colin Davis

I prefer the Toscanini ‘Harold’ with Carlton Cooley but it is not available on Spotify.

Albums at Amazon:

Symphonie Fantastique recording from above LP.

Harold in Italy – Charles Munch with William Primrose / Boston SO.

Harold in Italy – Toscanini with Carlton Cooley – NBC Orch. – great Berlioz CD!

Overtures – Davis / London Symphony Orch.

These recordings are also in the Davis Berlioz set on Philips.

Davis recorded these overtures later for RCA and on the LSO Live label. Both are recommended versions too.
