Description

Beethoven broke new ground in exploring the potential of the symphony, both in terms of its subject matter and its qualities as descriptive music. The title of each movement of his sixth symphony, outlines what is being portrayed, and in the case of the bird-calls at the end of the second movement, Beethoven made a point of instructing his copyist to include the names of the birds (nightingale, quail, cuckoo) in the score! Many, many recordings have been made of Beethovens popular Pastoral symphony but one, sometimes overlooked, is Ashkenazys ideally-paced, picturesque and oh-so-lyrical account of this great work. It is coupled with two of the composers most popular overtures Egmont and Leonore No.3.
