About

The landscape surrounding Beethoven had a huge influence on his music, particularly his 6th Symphony, which was completed in 1808 and first performed in a four-hour concert in Vienna that same year. He described the Pastoral symphony as “more the expression of feeling than painting”.

The symphony has descriptive titles for each movement, including Scene from the Brookside, and Thunder and Storm, and different parts of the score were used to represent the birds Beethoven would often hear on his walks in the woods near his home, the flute for the nightingale, the oboe for the quail and clarinets to represent the sound of the cuckoo.

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies and arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
