The Philadelphia Orchestra - Beethoven's "Pastoral"
Featured in Disney’s Fantasia, the “Pastoral” Symphony paints vivid scenes of gathering thunderstorms, wandering brooks, and breezy countrysides. Both Webern’s Passacaglia and Berg’s Wozzeck received their U.S. premieres in Philadelphia as part of Stokowski’s vision for 20th-century music. Barbara Hannigan stuns audiences with her dramatic portrayal (and provocative costuming) in scenes from Ligeti’s thrilling opera, Le Grande Macabre.
