Saturday Morning Cartoons: A Pastoral Thanksgiving
Saturday, November 24, 2012
For this final Saturday of Beethoven Awareness Month, we spotlight the last movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral.” Known as the “Shepherds Song: happy and thankful feelings after the storm,” this movement is especially fitting for Thanksgiving weekend.
In this segment from Walt Disney's classic "Fantasia," music from this symphony backdrops a mythological setting.
