Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 'Pastoral'
The renowned period ensemble Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and concert master Bernhard Forck pair Beethoven’s beloved Pastoral Symphony with an intriguing counterpart. Justin Heinrich Knecht’s “Portrait musical de la nature” precedes Beethoven’s symphony by 23 years, yet is another symphonic attempt to depict nature. This is the first time these two works have been recorded together.
