The Great Symphonies: Beethoven’s Pastoral
Rafael Payare – Conductor
Programme to include: Beethoven Symphony No.6 Pastoral
Join the Ulster Orchestra and its sensational young Music Director, Rafael Payare, in a concert that celebrates its fifty years as Northern Ireland’s world-class symphony orchestra and that will evoke, ‘the awakening of happy feelings on arriving in the countryside.’
In his uplifting Pastoral Symphony (the best ever written, according to many), Beethoven takes delight in painting a musical picture of rustic rural life and the fresh air of nature.

This concert is part of the Orchestra’s ‘On Your Doorstep’ year-long musical journey around Northern Ireland, performing fifty times across the region in its fiftieth year.
