Gabriel Pierné was a French composer, conductor, organist, and multi-instrumentalist of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Pierné has a vast musical output of works for orchestra, chamber music, opera, and solo pieces, and will be particularly remembered in musical history for conducting the premier of Igor Stravinsky’s The Firebird.
Pastoral Variée is a wonderful composition for small chamber ensemble. The orchestration is for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet in Bb, 2 Bassoons, Trumpet in C, and Horn in F. This piece would make a perfect addition to recital programs for students and professionals, and is a great way to improve on chamber music beyond brass quintet.
