Is anyone familiar with this piece?
Background: Richard Stoker was born about 10 miles from where I live, and he will be 75 in November 2013. I plan to buy his Pieces for Polita op 57 & record them (or a selection) for that youtube place in time for his 75th birthday.
Given the time available I may then consider adding one of his other compositions. The Improvisation & the Sonatina are probably beyond me even from this distance, so I want to know if anyone has experience of the Pastorale.
Further info: I am a recent returner to guitar and gradually getting some technique back. Pressures of work and demanding teenage children curtail my practice time so I don't expect to be anything more than D06/D07 even after the 18+ months available. If you know the Pastorale or the other op 42 works you may be able to tell me if I would be wasting my time.
Of course after playing the op 57 works I may not like them anyway so wouldn't want to learn more
But based on hearing his Clarinet sonatina I think that's unlikely
