Autograph musical quotation from the composer's Symphony No. 2, signed in full
["Piston's"] masterful orchestrations emphasize clarity and brilliance as opposed to novelty and effect. Along with a compelling sense of form, he also displayed a dazzling handling of canon, invertible counterpoint, melodic retrograde and inversion, and other contrapuntal techniques. The traditional forms of sonata, rondo, variation, fugue and passacaglia acquired a distinctive lucidity and compression in his hands. One can readily discern in his music an engineer's concern for formal precision, a painter's care for colouristic detail and a violist's attention to inner voices." Howard Pollack in Grove online The Symphony No. 2 received a New York Music Critics' Circle award.. Octavo, 225 x 145 mm. 4 measures notated in blue ink marked "Moderato" at head and identified in Piston's hand as being from Symphony No. 2. Dated June 12, 1968. Inscribed to Arthur J. Siemientkowski. Creased at folds; slightly browned; two small holes to blank lower edge.
