BEETHOVEN           Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68 ‘Pastoral’ (39’)
Prokofiev’s Third Concerto began life as a student work, but it would be a further ten years before it was completed. The composer himself gave the 1921 premiere in Chicago to rapturous response. Composed over two summers in the delightful rural village of Heiligenstadt, Beethoven’s cheery Pastoral Symphony could not be any more different from the dramatic Fifth, which he worked on at around the same time.
