SNAPSHOTS: ONWARD
Debussy, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun
Debussy, Rhapsodie for Orchestra and Saxophone
Berlioz, Symphonie Fantastique, Op. 14

Symphonie fantastique by Hector Berlioz is a musical psychedelic trip because of its hallucinatory and dream-like nature. It tells the story of an artist gifted with a lively imagination who falls desperately in love with a woman at first sight. Later, convinced that his love is hopeless and unrequited, he poisons himself with opium. The narcotic plunges him into a heavy sleep accompanied by strange and dark visions.
