A message from Maestro Guillermo Figueroa
Here are videos of a performance of the Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique that I did with the Texas All-State Orchestra. There were 130 players, just like Berlioz would have wanted! It’s hard to believe they are all high school kids, they’re so good. They play hot, and with a lot of freedom and rubato, more than making up for an occasional ensemble lapse.
