Classical Season Opener: “Carnival of the Animals”

Juanjo Mena gets our classical summer season off to a spectacular start with two kaleidoscopic French works. Saint-Saëns’ delightful musical pictures of animals feature the incomparable Labèque sisters on piano. Then it’s the crazy world of Berlioz’ “Symphonie fantastique,” depicting the drug-fueled madness of unrequited love.
