Music Fueled By Desire Hector Berlioz Symphony Fantastique

Orchestration

An innovative orchestrator, Berlioz assigned each instrument its own emotional attributes. Identifying the instruments Berlioz chose to play the idée fixe gives us another way to examine his feelings toward Harriet.


What's Your Impression?

How do the instruments Berlioz uses affect the character of the idée fixe?
