Penderecki Adagio for Strings
Christopher Gough Three Belarusian Folk Songs
Beethoven Symphony No6 Pastoral
Cornelius Meister Conductor
Aleksei Kiseliov Cello
Beethoven knew that nature can heal the spirit, and from cheerful opening to serene finish, there’s no music more life-affirming than his lovely Pastoral Symphony. Hear it for the thunderstorms and shepherds, or simply enjoy the sound of Ludwig letting his hair down – either way, it’ll refresh your soul in these unprecedented times.
