John Nelson: La Damnation de Faust

In 2019, we continued our long-term commitment to conceive, create and deliver recorded performances of Berlioz works for conductor John Nelson by arranging concert performances of “The Damnation of Faust” in collaboration with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg. Along with John Nelson, the performances featured Joyce DiDonato, Michael Spyres and Nicolas Courjal. We also arranged for the recording of the performances, and the CD and DVD was released on Warner Classics on 22 November 2019.
