Episode 323: Vincent Persichetti Featuree
Those of us who don’t live on the east coast are really out of touch with those who live there. When the rest of us think about heading in to work, we think about a very short commute, probably in our own car. We don’t think of getting to the train station in time to catch a two hour train to work. Vincent Persichetti, one of the premier wind band composers made that trip from Philly to Long Island to get to Julliard and then back again at the end of the day. On this episode of Wind & Rhythm, we’re featuring his music and considering what he experienced as he wrote some amazing repertoire for winds.
Divertimento, Opus 42: Vincent Persichetti
      University of Michigan Symphonic Band, Michael Haithcock
Serenade No. 1: Vincent Persichetti
