Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 'Pastoral'
Artist
Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and Bernhard Forck
Label
Harmonia Mundi
Catalogue Number
HMM902425
Release Date
February 28, 2020

Two symphonies ‘on the theme of nature’! Valid though this expression is, it nevertheless calls for quotation marks: far from being a prefiguration of the famous Pastoral, the Symphonie ‘Portrait musical de la nature’ represented a highly convincing attempt by its composer to extricate himself from programme music , 23 years before Beethoven's masterpiece! It is exciting to hear these two works recorded together for the first time by a period-instrument orchestra directed by its concertmaster, Bernhard Forck.
