Michael Tilson Thomas leads the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra brilliantly in his incisive reading of the work. Several aspects make this recording rise above the hundreds of other recordings of the work. First of all, MTT has the orchestral forces playing both with total conviction and total control. The attraction for Berlioz collectors will be the rarely recorded sequel to the symphony, Lelio, a "return to life" by the poet who fell into a dream-trance and experienced the haunted visions of the symphony.

Michael Steinberg, the San Francisco Symphony’s Program Annotator from 1979 to 1999 and a contributing writer to our program book until his death in 2009, was one of the nation’s pre-eminent writers on music. We are privileged to continue publishing his program notes.

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony bring unsurpassed storytelling and musicality to their latest recording on the Grammy Award-winning SFS Media label: Berlioz’s dramatic symphony Roméo et Juliette. With a narrative that Berlioz deemed too beautiful, too musical to not be performed, this impassioned orchestral scoring of love and despair is further enriched by the vocals of Sasha Cooke, Nicholas Phan, Luca Pisaroni, and the SFS Chorus. Roméo et Juliette is widely considered to be one of Berlioz’s finest and most daring works. She later became the inspiration for his Symphonie fantastique. Though his romance for her waned, his admiration for Shakespeare continued to grow over time.
