There is a scene at the stream, a thunderstorm and a shepherd’s song.
Ludwig van Beethoven’s 6th symphony, also known as “Pastorale”, transports the listeners into the open air, even though for the composer himself his music meant “more expression of feeling than painting”: nature as a mirror of the soul. The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen has received much praise for its complete recording of all Beethoven symphonies. On this evening, the young Finn Tarmo Peltokoski the first guest conductor ever appointed by this brilliant orchestra, tells the story of water, wind and the legendary Fingal’s Cave with Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy’s concert overture “The Hebrides”. Sharon Kam discovers the vastness of musical landscapes in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, especially in the enchanting Adagio.
