Beethoven wrote to a friend, “no one can love the country as much as I do. For surely woods, trees and rocks produce the echo that man desires to hear.” The Pastoral brings you back to nature with its musical depiction of the countryside, punctuated with sweet birdsongs, the first drops of an unexpected storm, violent thunderclaps and the joyous return of the sun. Also on the program, the hummable melodies and achingly beautiful “Adagio” of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23, performed by Ingrid Fliter.
