Ludwig van Beethoven: Movements from Symphony No. 6 “Pastoral”

The concert is hosted in Finnish.
Man has alternately worshipped, feared, ravaged, protected and tried to tame nature. Its mystery and beauty have also inspired composers throughout history, but how have they sought to capture these? In this concert of nature-themed music we try to answer this question, at the same time reflecting on the complex relationship between man and nature.
Addressing the topic (in Finnish) will be pianist Jukka Nykänen and meteorologist Annina Valtonen.
Age recommendation 13+. Duration 75 minutes.
