Pastoral

Beethoven
Symphony No.6 'Pastoral'
Beethoven
Symphony No.7
Beethoven
Symphony No.8
Vasily Petrenko
conductor

With its birdsong, horn-calls and playful musical jokes, there’s no experience in music more lifeaffirming than Beethoven’s ever-fresh ‘Pastoral’ symphony. And there’s none more gloriously, exuberantly physical than his unstoppable seventh – the piece that made even Wagner jump up and dance.

Vasily Petrenko’s journey through Beethoven’s symphonies reaches two of the most enduringly popular masterpieces in all music – and follows them with the irresistible eighth symphony. Machine-music, high romance and knockabout comedy come together in one explosive little package: light the blue touchpaper, and stand well back!
