«Pastorale» Op.32 No.1 | Work information
The harp is central in «Pastorale» Op.32 No.1
- «Pastorale» Op.32 No.1 is an apparently bright and care-free composition which only after a while begins to worry us – this is due to the elegant use of bitonality which gives the piece a veritable Janus face. We are treated to another example of Beppe's compositional ambiguity – one of the principal elements of his music – in a work which is open to interpretation in any direction. The home key is F, constantly "undermined" by C sharp minor and D flat major tonalities.
Wolfgang Plagge, professor
