Default Pastorale

The musical equivalent of Shakespeare is probably Beethoven.
Apart from being one of the master architects in music ( his music is far more 'constructed' than even Bach ) he managed to depict in his works the struggle and tragedy of life in all its complexity and without losing faith in mankind. German idealism ( based on Schiller ) at its very best.
One of his most enchanting symphonies is the so called "Pastorale" , here --after an allmighty storm scene in the 4th movement-- the peaceful 5th movement ( "Shepherd's hymn after the storm") . A timeless masterpiece ,which grows on you even after decades of listening to it.

This is an amazing concept. The composer used people off you tube for this.
All of the singers are singing their individual part off video. People from
all over the world coming together. Different races, sexes sounding like
angels. If only the world could work this way. My best friend sang in
the choir in school she was great. When I first saw this thought of angels.
She is dead this made me feel hope. To anyone watching this there
are several songs check them out.

Hello folks,
I've just registered here and stumbled across your fine thread. Seems like a very encouraging sign!

That Liszt was excellent, do you happen to know who the pianist was please? Couldn't see it on the Youtube page...

I'm slightly dismayed that it appears several of my favourite recordings are not available on Youtube

So instead I'll leave this here Beethoven/Liszt - Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68, 'Pastoral' (Cyprien Katsaris) - YouTube
Fantastic performance (the Storm movement particularly great), and I think I've grown to prefer this version to the symphonic original!

Edited to add: Apologies, been a long day, hadn't spotted that this was the second posting of Beethoven's 6th on this page! It's of sufficient calibre to merit it though

Welcome to the Titanic then !!

Here is a 3- pack of Mendelssohn :

An unusual Mendelssohn work:
"Calm Sea and prosperous voyage''. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VUz-PZx528 ( as a bonus the atmospheric paintings by Fritz Hugh Lane ).
His music has quite some magic ,but is --what Alfred Brendel used to say about Liszt -- like ''wax in the interpreters hands'', which means an inadequate performance can wreck this music for good.

Particularly his piano music isn't easy to pull off, here one of the best interpreters of it, the great Ignaz Friedman:
Ignaz Friedman plays Mendelssohn Songs Without Words (selection) - YouTube

When sung expressive his oratorios are mesmerising . Particularly ''Woe ,woe unto them'' is such a magical moment.
Kathleen Ferrier sings two arias from Mendelssohn's Elijah - YouTube
