Eclogue

On this autumn afternoon, I'm listening to Eclogue, a wistful piece for piano and strings by 20th English composer Gerald Finzi. An eclogue is a short pastoral poem, often in dialogue form. This piece evokes the feeling of a country scene like the one below between two friends. In simple gifts such as these, may you find delight.
