Beethoven: Symphonies 6 'Pastoral' & 8. (CD - EMI Classics. In early 2008, EMI reissued a handful of Klaus Tennstedt's recordings from the 1980s, among which are these exceptional performances of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 in F major and his Symphony No. 6 in F major, "Pastoral," played with meticulous execution, luminous tone, and responsive feeling by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

6. Symphony No. 8 in F major, Op. 93: 2. Allegretto scherzando. 7. 93: 3. Tempo di Menuetto. 8. 93: 4. Allegro vivace. I heard Leonard Bernstein conducting a Vienna Philharmonic performance of one of Beethoven's symphonies. at Wolf Trap Park in northern Virginia more than 25 years ago. Between the warmth for which the Vienna is famed and the vitality of a Bernstein performance, this seemed to be a special performance. I am very pleased to have a recording of Bernstein conducting the Vienna performing Beethoven's nine symphonies. 5 people found this helpful.
Beethoven: Symphony No. 6, Schubert: Symphony No. 5, Böhm, Vienna Philharmonic Orch. Obviously a labor of love for conductor and orchestra. Every nuance of the Maestro's most sensitive and heart-felt symphony is offered with exquisite concern for balance and depth. I never thought I would find the flowing Andanteperformed in so dreamlike afashion - have been frustrated by it being too rushed before.
The Symphony No. 8, played with a whimsical if not quite ironic air, is captured with remarkably full sound in the 1985 digital recording, and the Symphony No. 6, recorded a year later, is even better in its resonant tone and delightful ambience, making it the most gemütlich of the performances. EMI's reproduction is somewhat different in the two recordings, sounding a bit dry in the Eighth and more open and spacious in the "Pastoral," so listeners may find the sound quality of the latter performance preferable.
