    6. Hector Berlioz - Dream of a Witches' Sabbath from Symphonie Fantastique. Berlioz uses a range of orchestral effects to create the scene of a gathering of witches - violins using the backs of their bows to create bubbling cauldron sounds, the sound of a funeral bell and outbursts of musical laughter.
