Andris Nelsons conducts Beethoven Symphonies 6 & 7

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

Andris Nelsons, conductor

Symphony No. 6, Pastoral
Symphony No. 7

Beethoven conceived his Pastoral Symphony, No. 6, as an illustration of a lovely day spent in the countryside, where we encounter babbling brooks, birds of various sorts, friendly country dwellers, and a brief, tumultuous storm. His Seventh Symphony has long been one of his most popular works—especially its solemn Allegretto, which had such an effect at its premiere that it was immediately encored.
