    This is the famous Symphony #6 by Beethoven. It evokes a day in the country, hence its nickname, The Pastoral Symphony" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2VY33VXnrQ There were lots of versions on You Tube. This one is Leonard Bernstein's interpretation. I was raised on the Von Karajan version, but this one is very nice too.
