Video: Disney’s Fantasia and Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony

Terry Teachout’s heart-warming post about music that makes him smile (scroll down to ‘Make Me Smile’) reminded me that the Disney film Fantasia had a whole sequence devoted to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, the Pastoral Symphony. I couldn’t remember that much detail about it, so went searching, and what do you know but I found it on YouTube, and the childhood memories came rushing back. Check out the first part below, it just might bring a smile to your face. You can also see Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4 on YouTube.
