Birdsong. Flowing rivers. Summer storms. In his 'Pastoral' Symphony, Beethoven has us stop and smell the roses.
Remarkable to think this, his Sixth Symphony, was composed at the same time as his fire and brimstone Fifth Symphony, the work’s lush sense of nature invites you to enjoy the country after too long in the city.
