Pastorale

Listen to the Pastorale for Woodwind Quintet by Vincent Persichetti, born this day in 1915.

It’s worth listening a few times.  I find it takes awhile to hear the internal relationships among themes.  Persichetti’s music is friendly to the ear, interesting to the performer, and complex enough to be fully 20th Century.
