One of Beethoven's few works containing explicitly programmatic content, the symphony was first performed in the Theater an der Wien on 22 December in a four hour concert. Beethoven was a lover of nature who spent a great deal of his time on walks in the country.
He frequently left Vienna to work in rural locations. The first sketches of the Pastoral Symphony appeared in It was composed simultaneously with Beethoven's more famous—and more fiery—Fifth Symphony. Both symphonies were premiered in a long and under-rehearsed concert in the Theater an der Wien in Vienna on 22 December It is in F Major, returning to the main key of the symphony.
The movement is an altered version of the usual form for scherzi, in that the trio appears twice rather than just once, and the third appearance of the scherzo theme is truncated. Perhaps to accommodate this rather spacious arrangement, Beethoven did not mark the usual internal repeats of the scherzo and the trio. Theodor Adorno identifies this scherzo as the model for the scherzi by Anton Bruckner.

OK, I agree No, give me more info. In preparation for the event he had put aside work on his projected opera Macbeth and on the alternative text of Bradamante, both supplied by Heinrich von Collin, and assembled a programme of phenomenal length. The works played included the Fifth Symphony, the Fourth Piano Concerto, a piano fantasia, items for soloists and chorus and, in conclusion, a Fantasia for the Pianoforte which ends with the gradual entrance of the entire orchestra and the introduction of the choruses as a finale, the Choral Fantasia.
Predictably the concert was an embarrassment to Beethoven's friends, compelled to sit for four hours in the bitterly cold Theater-an-der-Wien. As one otherwise sympathetic observer reported, it proved possible to have too much of a good thing, and still more of a loud. The concert was under-rehearsed, and Beethoven had met considerable opposition from members of the orchestra.

In the Choral Fantasia instructions about repeats had been misunderstood, so that the work had to be started again, and Beethoven intervened with audible comments on mistakes. Nevertheless the Sixth Symphony, which happily opened the concert, was well enough received, in spite of its unusual length. The advertisement for Beethoven's December concert billed the Pastoral Symphony as A Recollection of Country Life, to be described by the composer, in a careful attempt to dispel any suspicion that he had written a crude imitation of nature, as more an expression of feeling than tone-painting.
In some ways the work may be seen as a conclusion and summary of a tradition of music inspired by the country, although the Wordsworthian suggestion of emotion recollected in tranquillity is very much of its period.

In his early years in Bonn Beethoven had planned a symphony, the natural ambition of any composer. His first extant composition in this form, however, was written towards the end of the century and first performed in Vienna at the Imperial Court Theatre on 2nd April, The symphony was dedicated to Baron van Swieten, the arbiter of musical taste in Vienna, who had encouraged Mozart and provided the texts for Haydn's later oratorios. The programme for what was in fact Beethoven's first benefit concert was a substantial one.

A Mozart symphony was followed by an aria from Haydn's Creation. Then came a piano concerto by Beethoven, with the composer as soloist. The Schuppanzigh Quartet was joined by three wind-players to perform a septet, by Beethoven. After this came the symphony. As so often in Beethoven's career, reviews were decidedly cool, and we may gather that all did not run as smoothly as it should have done.
There was a quarrel about who should direct the orchestra, and the players did not listen to the soloist in the concerto, while in the symphony the wind instruments were particularly unenthusiastic in their performance.
