Beethoven Symphony 6
Maestro Hannu Lintu interprets Beethoven’s glorious “Pastoral” symphony, a leisurely stroll through the countryside. He also presents two absorbing works by his fellow Finns: gems from Sibelius’s incidental score for Shakespeare’s romantic fantasy, and Lindberg’s intense trio of interrogations drawn from more than 200 years of international political history.
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada. Ce projet est financé en partie par le gouvernement du Canada.
