Berlioz’s L’enfance du Christ Conducted by Hervé Niquet

Berlioz’s L’enfance du Christ Conducted by Hervé Niquet

Maison symphonique de Montréal

After his highly acclaimed first appearance at the Maison symphonique in 2019, French conductor Hervé Niquet is back with the OSM to direct Berlioz’s L’enfance du Christ. With this monumental, three-part work for soloists, choir and orchestra, the composer further made his mark as a great dramatist, recounting the many episodes of a biblical saga, bringing each character to life with remarkable refinement, simplicity and intensity.
