Symphony No.6 in F, Op 68 (Pastoral) 1st movement Beethoven Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Beethoven wrote his 'Pastoral' symphony in 1808. In a major break from the classical tradition, he supplied a subtitle in the score for each of the 5 movements. This makes it an example of 'programme music', though it expresses moods and feelings more than attempted sound effects. It shows Beethoven at the transition between the classical and the romantic styles. Beethoven described the 1st movement as 'Awakening of cheerful feelings on arrival in the country.' Its tempo is marked 'allegro ma non troppo'.
