Beethoven: Symphony Nr. 6, F Major, Op. 68, "Pastoral"

Listen to a live recording of Beethoven's Sixth Symphony, the "Pastoral," performed by Istanbul's National Conservatory orchestra at the 2002 Beethoven Festival in Bonn.


Beethoven captured country scenes in his Sixth Symphony

In 1808, the year he completed his Sixth Symphony, Beethoven wrote: " How happy I am to be able to walk amo n g the shrubs, the trees, the woods, the grass a n d the rocks! For the woods, the trees a n d the rocks give ma n the reso n a n ce he n eeds."

Opus 68, dubbed the "Pastoral," was a celebration of nature. Even the subtitles the composer gave to each of the five movements suggest the programmatic intentions behind the piece. However, the work evokes feelings more than it paints in sound.

Under the direction of Ramiz Mailk-Aslanov, the Istanbul's National Conservatory orchestra performed Beethoven's picturesque Sixth Symphony at the 2002 Beethoven Festival in Bonn.

Deutsche Welle sponsored the orchestra's one-week residency in Germany where the young musicians had the opportunity to rehearse with famed conductors like Krzysztof Penderecki, Helmuth Rilling and Peter Gülke.

The National Conservatory orchestra was invited on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of the establishment of the Turkish language service of DW-RADIO.
