BEETHOVEN: Symphony No.6 (Pastoral) Erich Kleiber - LXT2872

WAS £8.99 £4.49

Product description

BEETHOVEN: Symphony No.6 in F major, Op.68

Composed in 1808, Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony is one of his few pieces to have explicitly programmatic content. Originally dubbed 'recollections of life in the country', Beethoven’s Symphony is his homage to the great outdoors. The composer was, in many ways, an urban man, known and revered in Vienna, and central to the city’s reputation within European culture at the time. And yet, as the five descriptively titled sections of this piece so amply prove, he also had a joyous view of the countryside and all it contains. The work is one of the first real examples of what became known as 'programme music': music that tells a specific story or paints an aural picture of a particular scene.

Side 1
1. Allegro ma non troppo (Awakening of happy feelings on arriving in the country)
2. Andante molto mosso (By the brook)

Side 2
3. Allegro (Peasant's merrymaking)
4. Allegro (The Storm)
5. Allegretto (Shepherd's Hymn: Thanksgiving after the storm)

The Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam
Conductor: Erich Kleiber

The sleeve is GOOD; consistent with age.
Record graded visually to RRPG grade VERY GOOD.
We recommend that the record is cleaned by a professional to maximise the sound quality.
