Pastorale – PDF

Pastorale Stravinsky. You’ll not find much Stravinsky for band?  Indeed an unusual “folk” piece from the great master and “Enfant Terrible” that changed the music world as we know it? I found this ditty as a child on a 2nd hand record bought by my dad, a Decca Phase 4 with Leopold Stowkowski born the same year as Stravinsky.https://youtu.be/BYlG9t0K_EI

Pastorale Stravinsky. Indeed an unusual “folk” piece from the great master and “Enfant Terrible” that changed the music world as we know it? I found this ditty as a child on a 2nd hand record bought by my dad, a Decca Phase 4 with Leopold Stowkowski born the same year as Stravinsky. In fact in this recording it was Leopold’s own arrangement for orchestra and solo Violin. I later found out that both Leopold and Igor were neighbours in Beverly Hills (hence the relationship via Disney for “Fantasia”) and Igor was at a party on the piano playing the ditty and Leopold asked if he could arrange it? Igor had no fixed instrumental abode for it at this time and 35 years later it appears on Decca. I saw this as a WW quintet arr with Edition Musicus USA owned by a nice lady Helen Grady and her Grandfather met Stravinsky in Russia in 1909 while doing other deals with new up and coming composers and later Shostakovich and Prokofiev & Rachmaninoff with early works to publish in the USA. So I asked under her publications rights to arrange for brass band and soloists and she generously granted this to me in 1995. Played here by the Fairey Band with Frank Renton conducting.
