A Fantastic Performance of Beethoven's 6th Symphony

By July 10, 2011

Follow me on:

Sometimes, there is nothing better than losing yourself in a performance of one of Beethoven's nine symphonies.  Today I had the pleasure of doing just that, and I'd like to share it with you as well.  This transcending performance of Beethoven's 6th Symphony is simply the best I've heard in a very long time.  It helps that the performance was beautifully recorded.  Conductor, Myung-Whun Chung, brilliantly leads the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie through Beethoven's "Recollections of Country Life" (Beethoven's own title to his 6th symphony).   Below, you'll find YouTube links to enjoy this wonderful masterpiece.  Happy listening!

Thanks this is indeed a great performance and great sounding video for youtube. A quick suggestion, you can create a playlist and share the link so we don’t have to look for the next part.
