Discovering Beethoven - Symphony No. 6 'Pastoral'
In the monumental project "Beethoven9", Christian Thielemann, one of the most widely recognized conductors of our time, joined forces with the prestigious Wiener Philharmoniker for their recording of all nine symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven. In addition to the actual concerts a one-of-a-kind collection of accompanying material has been put together for this project: in a one-hour-long film for each symphony Maestro Thielemann introduces the work together with Germany’s most eminent music critic, Joachim Kaiser. Their charming and entertaining conversational exchange is complemented by excerpts from rehearsals and concert performances as well as by comparisons with other productions of Beethoven’s symphonies.
