G6-12 Discovery Concert: Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony

Beethoven’s only programmatic symphony reminisces on recollections of a visit to the countryside, something the composer found irresistibly refreshing and therapeutic.  But Beethoven took pains not to employ so-called “text painting” techniques in this remarkable work; rather, he strove to focus on feelings and, in his words, “leaving it to the listener to discover the situations.”  What makes this symphony so great, and why is Beethoven still considered to be such a master, now 250 years after his birth?  Join us as we address these questions in detail.
