Beethoven, Symphony No. 6 in F Major, Op. 68, “Pastoral Symphony”The "Pastoral Symphony, or Recollections of Country Life" expresses Beethoven’s affinity for nature and his love for walks through the country outside Vienna.Vaughn Williams, Lark Ascending Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending is a gentle, introspective work.  It is one of the supreme achievements of English landscape painting extoling the untroubled joys of nature, the call of the lark, and the genial folk music of earlier times.Resphighi, Gli Uccelli “The Birds”

This suite of pieces is based on various 18th century composers. The Birds is an attempt to depict the bird songs and fluttering wings of the Dove, the Hen, the Nightingale and the Cuckoo.
