The Places • The tour of France takes us to Burgundy, to the Pays de la Loire, to Franche-Comté andelsewhere and includes glimpses of the 17th century Château de Cheverny, with its hunting museum andsouvenirs of the chase, and the Château d’Arlay, with its site for falconry. The Château de Bussy-Rabutainwas rebuilt in the middle of the 17th century by Count Roger of Bussy-Rabutain, exiled from the French courtafter his scandalous Histoire amoureuse des Gaules, a literary preoccupation reflected in his collection ofpictures. The restored gardens of the Château de Villandry are seen in their formal lay-out.The Music • The music chosen to accompany the tour of the fertile and varied landscapes of France isby Beethoven and consists principally of his Pastoral Symphony, a work that reflects his feelings, as herecollects a visit to the countryside. The symphony includes elements of realism in its versions of bird-callsand its depiction of a storm, followed by a song of the thanksgiving, when thestorm has passed. Also included is the Romance in G, a single movement for soloviolin and orchestra, possibly intended for a violin concerto that was never written.
