Hector Berlioz’s groundbreaking Symphonie fantastique is the centerpiece of a new recording by the Utah Symphony under its music director Thierry Fischer. Rounding out the album are choral versions of La mort d’Ophélie and Sara la baigneuse. These works may be relative rarities on record but both are vintage Berlioz, short and striking, which should be much better known.
