Beethoven Symphony 6
Beethoven expressed his deep love of nature most clearly in the “Pastoral” Symphony. Relaxing, refreshing, glowing with sunshine (except for the vivid thunderstorm of the fourth movement), it’s guaranteed to lift your spirits after a busy day.
Come for: Juanjo Mena, the newly appointed Chief Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, and a regular guest conductor with such major orchestras as the Chicago and Boston Symphonies, makes his TSO début.
And more: Described by the Los Angeles Times as “a virtuoso with heart and a champion’s bearing,” soloist Julian Rachlin was the youngest violinist ever to play a concerto with the Vienna Philharmonic.
