Notes & Reviews:

Former Principal Conductor and Music Director of the London Philharmonic Orchestra Klaus Tennstedt leads the Orchestra in these live concert performances of Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony No. 6 and his Overture to Egmont, recorded in 1991 and 1992 at the Royal Festival Hall, London. 'No one can love the countryside as much as I do,' Beethoven once said, 'for surely woods, trees and rocks produce the echo which man desires to hear.' But nature was not just a balm for the senses; for Beethoven it was evidence of the Creator's hand. In his Sixth Symphony, Beethoven created a magnificent orchestral landscape in which the atmosphere of the countryside pervades every bar.
