Beethoven Pastoral Project with the MSO
June 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
Music that makes a difference.
Come together to celebrate music’s power to inspire, as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra plays their part in a United Nations project to support a sustainable environment and a better world for millions of people.
In June, the MSO will participate in an international project to raise awareness and inspire Melbourne to take a stance on climate change. And there is nothing more evocative of the beauty and fragility of the natural world, than Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, affectionately known as the Pastoral.
For Beethoven, nature was a place of relaxation, solitude and inspiration. Today, nature is under threat and humankind is on a course to damage our environment beyond repair. Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony musically depicts the harmonious unity between mankind and nature this special project seeks to champion worldwide.
