Overview

Beethoven’s deep love of nature-inspired his 6th Symphony, and he famously said this work was “more an expression of feeling than painting.” Be swept away to the countryside as you hear musical scenes depicting the calls of birds near a brook, a peasant’s dance, a thunderstorm, and a shepherd’s prayer. Concierto de Aranjuez, which ushered the classical guitar into the 20th century, will guide you on a journey of the Aranjuez region of Spain which Rodrigo and his wife loved to visit. Written in the vibrant key of D Major, Prokofiev’s “Classical Symphony” hearkened back to the Viennese Classicism of Haydn and Mozart while still managing to capture the essence of his tumultuous era in history.
