Beethoven, Symphony No. 6, Pastoralbiography | programme note

If the Pastoral Symphony is Beethoven’s personal musical response to Nature, his most cherished and dependable companion in life, Mahler’s delight in rusticity and musical folklore is captured in a stunning collection of songs that was to have a far-reaching impact on the remainder of his output.

Please note that unfortunately Daniele Gatti, who was originally advertised to conduct this concert, has had to withdraw due to illness. The Philharmonia Orchestra is very grateful to conductor Karl-Heinz Steffens for stepping in to replace him at very short notice.
