Hector Berlioz: Overtures. Super Audio Hybrid CD - Chandos 5118). For brilliant tone colors, innovative instrumental combinations, and startling effects, the music of Hector Berlioz has seldom been surpassed, and students of this arch-Romantic composer know that this is where the art of modern orchestration begins. The seven overtures on this 2013 Chandos disc epitomize Berlioz's fiery imagination and technical skill with each instrument and section of the orchestra, and the originality of Le Corsaire, Béatrice et Bénédict, Les Francs-juges, Le Carnaval romain, Waverley, Le roi Lear, and Benvenuto Cellini have kept them alive.
