Beethoven’s Vienna was a crossroads of Europe; a multinational metropolis teeming with new ideas. Innovation was in the air, and in this concert we hear how the “tick-tock” of the newly-invented metronome could double, for Beethoven, as a homage to his teacher Haydn. And how the birdsong, the folk dances and the fresh, rough-cut melodies that fill his lovely ‘Pastoral’ Symphony weren’t merely an inspiration to
Beethoven alone. They were all around him: in the fields and woods around Vienna, across Germany in the delightful nature music of Justin Heinrich Knecht, and even right here in Scotland…
