NZ Nature Walk

From Upbeat, 5:00 pm on 5 June 2020

RNZ Concert listeners are sharing photos of favourite local nature walks with us to mark Beethoven Pastoral Day. Here are  some of the amazing views we've received from all across New Zealand. Ka pai, Aotearoa:

The Beethoven Pastoral Project invites us to think about our relationship with nature through music, and this year in partnership with the United Nations, World Environment Day (5 June), has been dubbed "Beethoven Pastoral Day".

Beethoven had a special love of walking in nature, so RNZ Concert asked listeners to share your favourite New Zealand nature walk with us, tell us a bit about it, and music to soundtrack it. We entered you into a draw to win a complete set of Beethoven Symphonies performed by the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Herbert von Karajan. Pip Barker was the winner.
