THE SCORE REVEALS the different techniques Berlioz used to paint an ever-changing portrait of his muse as the Symphony progresses.


What's Your Impression?

What does this version of the idée fixe tell us about Berlioz's feelings for Harriet?

The second movement has a mysterious sounding introduction that creates an atmosphere of impending excitement, followed by a harps-dominated passage, then the flowing waltz theme appears, derived from the idée fixe at first[citation needed], and then transforming it. It is filled with running ascending and descending figures. The idée fixe theme interrupts the waltz twice.

Excellent! Have been teaching this for years and always had to try to collate the appearances of the idee fixe on tape/ cd - this is a brilliant teaching aid!
