WorksEgmont Overture, op.84
Leonore Overture no.3 in C major, op.72b
Symphony no.6 in F major, op.68 'Pastoral'
The title of each movement of his Sixth Symphony, outlines what is being portrayed, and in the case of the bird-calls at the end of the second movement, Beethoven made a point of instructing his copyist to include the names of the birds (nightingale, quail, cuckoo) in the score! Many, many recordings have been made of Beethoven’s popular ‘Pastoral’ Symphony but one, sometimes overlooked, is Ashkenazy’s ideally-paced, picturesque and oh-so-lyrical account of this great work. It is coupled with two of the composer’s most popular overtures – Egmont and Leonore No.3.
