Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony plus Britten’s Guide to the Orchestra.

Birds sing, peasants party and a wild thunderstorm rages across the fields. On World Environment Day, we participate in an international United Nations-led project to inspire everyone to take a stance on climate change. Beethoven’s Pastoral symphony is an evocative portrait of the harmonious and fragile unity between mankind and nature that blooms with rich detail in the hands of Asher Fisch.

Britten’s timeless Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is endlessly entertaining. Iain Grandage will guide us on a journey of infectious discovery with one of the world’s most enduring classics. Bring the family.
