Conductor François-Xavier Roth founded the authentic-instrument orchestra Les Siècles in 2003. Comprised of young musicians from some of the finest French ensembles, the group's aim is to offer a new approach not only to repertoire but also to the very nature of the concert form. This disc was recorded live at the 2009 Berlioz Festival in La Côte-Saint-André and features the composer's immortal Symphonie Fantastique. Especially for the recording, recently discovered, rare instruments from Berlioz's period were used.
