Saturday Morning Cartoons: Bastille Day With Berlioz

Email a Friend

In honor of Bastille Day, this Saturday's morning cartoon is an animated musical analysis from the BBC Radio 3 Discovering Music series of Hector Berlioz’s “March to the Scaffold,” the fourth movement of Symphonie Fantastique.

While not really a cartoon, musicologist and BBC Radio 3 broadcaster Stephen Johnson provides a wonderful walk through this well-known piece.
