Today we had rain and cool weather again. I stayed at home and made no single image. This is one more from yesterday, same place, different direction.
The title is of course from the Allegro ma non troppo “Erwachen heiterer Empfindungen bei der Ankunft auf dem Lande” (“Awakening of cheerful feelings upon arrival in the country”), the first movement of Beethoven’s 6th, the “pastoral” symphony.
Of the recordings that I have, I’d like to recommend John Eliot Gardiner and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique. I have heard them live and it was superb. No chance to find it on YouTube though, and here on the train (I’m on my way back to Vienna) I can’t upload it either, thus I’d like to point you to Frans Brüggen and his Orchestra of the 18th Century. Not bad either 🙂
