Today I'd like to share with you this charming Pastorale by Andrzej Mikołaj Szadejko, composer, conductor, organist, organizer of musical life from Gdansk, Poland. The Pastorale was published in 2019 by the publishing house of Music Academy of Stanisław Moniuszko in Gdansk in the collection 5 Pieces in the Old Style. In this piece Mr. Szadejko beautifully refers to one of the most famous keyboard sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti. I recorded it at Vilnius University St. John's church. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did learning this delightful piece!
