Conversacion Campesina means a conversation between
two Puerto Rican peasants called “Jíbaros” that sing in
the style of “Aguinaldo jíbaro” and “Aguinaldo quinto al
aire”. Elements of Puerto Rican folkloric music are heard
throughout the work. There also is a strong influence of
baroque music with the use of contrapuntal phrases. The
improvisatory and virtuosic passages, frequently played on
the Puerto Rican cuatro and acoustic guitar, are
given to the clarinet and bassoon, making this a
challenging and appealing addition to the chamber music
repertoire for these instruments. The original part for
bassoon was later transcribed for bass clarinet, with
the approval of the composer, to provide an alternate
version of the music. There are 3 movements with a total
duration of approximately 7 minutes.
This publication, JP2154, is for clarinet and bass
clarinet. See JP5128 for the edition for clarinet and
The Jeanne publication contains both a full score, usable
