Futatsu no Den-en-shi (Two Pastorals)

二つの田園詩 Futatsu no den-en-shi (Two Pastorals) – Katsutoshi Nagasawa (1973)

Consisting of two contrasting pieces, “Futasu no den-en-shi” seems to allude as much to the work to be done in the fields as to the calm contemplation at the end of the day.  The first piece is in 4/4 time and is quite slow while the second is livelier and in 3/4-time.
