Fantasia SAL – Week 15

Shepherd’s Song
from The Pastoral Symphony
by Ludwig van Beethoven

Fantasia fun fact: Several Greek mythological characters are portrayed in “Shepherd’s Song.” You see: Iris, the personification of the rainbow and messenger to the gods; Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and pleasure; Apollo, who pulls the sun across the sky with his chariot; Nyx (some sources suggest this could be Morpheus), the personification of the night; and Diana, the goddess of the hunt.
