Charlotte Scott violin
Marios Papadopoulos conductor*
Hannah Schneider conductor
The contrast from Beethoven’s insistent fifth symphony to his idyllic sixth couldn’t be more marked. From pounding heroism, Beethoven takes his listeners for a restorative walk in the countryside with his sixth, which quickly attracted the nickname ‘Pastoral’. Here, the symphony forms the culmination of a concert reflecting the country, continent and planet around us. As the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra plays Beethoven’s ‘Pastoral’ on UN World Environment Day, orchestras throughout the world will do the same, highlighting the overwhelming challenges faced by our planet.
