Misc. Comments

The interesting aspect of this piece is that Fine created an actual discourse. The first section, labeled “Amorous,” is a collection of phrases moving rather slowly in quarter- and half-notes that are later fragmented and juxtaposed in the second section’s "Boisterous," which consists of fast moving passages of eighth- and sixteenth-notes forming short phrases and figures that are interrupted frequently by passages from the previous section, creating the impression of two goatherds having a lively conversation.
