Beethoven Overture The Ruins of Athens | Tippett Ritual Dances | Beethoven Symphony No. 6, ‘Pastoral’

A wooded hilltop with a Greek temple: that is the enchanting setting for Tippett’s Ritual Dances – four symphonic dances from his opera A Midsummer Marriage. Ecstatic, rhythmically driven music in which the borderline between the earthly and the mythical becomes blurred in the best tradition of Beethoven – like a 20th-century echo of the Pastoral symphony and The Ruins of Athens.
