Symphony No 6 in F major 'Pastoral', S463c
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Breitkopf edition of the Pastoral Symphony appeared very shortly after the first edition from Richault and, apart from restoring Beethoven’s German titles for the movements, makes only one serious textual alteration: a new, more practical version of the passage in the finale from bar 133. Liszt actually offers two variants: one an ossia which merely simplifies the Richault text, and the other a main text (recorded here) which leaves out one of Beethoven’s lines altogether in an attempt to concentrate on giving an impression of the sheer volume of the original orchestral sound.
