Pastoral Reflections is a contemporary exploration on what the concept of 'Pastoral' means to us in this time of climate crisis. It features classical string sextet alongside field recordings, electronic bass & angular beats, centered around Gabriel Prokofiev's contemporary response to Beethoven's 250 year old Pastoral Symphony. The Album opens with the original first movement of Beethoven's famous symphony (arranged for sextet) - reminding listeners of our less troubled relationship with nature 250 years ago - before moving on to the modern beats of Prokofiev's recent composition Breaking Screens, which explores ideas of consumerism, digital life and impending crisis. The programme climaxes with 5 movement 'Pastoral Reflections' which echoes Beethoven's symphonic narrative, but from a contemporary perspective
