Conlon Nancarrow’s Piece No. 2 for Small Orchestra

Enjoying this piece, maybe in no small part because I’m working with Ives right now, and the two have at least a couple things in common: relative obscurity until much later than they began writing music; and interesting little pieces for small/chamber orchestras.

The final movement (Allegro non troppo) of Franck’s Symphony in d minor always reminds me of Looney Toons.

Here’s Monteux conducting the Chicago Symphony.
