Beethoven Pastoral Symphony

February 9–12
Benaroya Hall

Seattle Symphony

In his “Pastoral” Symphony, Beethoven flings open the doors of the concert hall, attuning his symphonic craft to the natural world like never before. Optimism, joy and thankfulness combine in the face of Nature’s raging storms. Conductor Lee Mills takes on this great masterpiece of which Berlioz later said, “it is a matter of nature in her simple truth.”
