About

Persichetti's stylistic breadth has prevented some casual listeners from recognizing a personal profile or unifying character in his music. With greater familiarity, however, a distinctive personality emerges, characterized by an almost childlike sense of mischief and a pervasive geniality of spirit in full control of whatever dynamic conflicts may be at work within the music. 
 
Both the Symphony for Strings and the Piano Concerto are major works from the most fertile, representative period of his career. Each emphasizes the "gritty" aspect of the composer's creative personality, displaying considerable structural complexity, an attenuated sense of tonality, and an astringent harmonic vocabulary.
