Tailleferre’s Pastorale for flute and piano of 1942 is in a 6/8 lilting metre and features a delightfully simple, diatonic theme on the flute; its quiet peak is reached, unaccompanied, via a series of scalic trilled steps.

La Pastorale, pour flûte et piano, de Tailleferre (1942), partage une mesure mélodieuse en 6/8 et présente un thème diatonique, délicieusement simple, à la flûte; son paisible apogée est atteint, sans accompagnement, via une série de degrés trillés en gammes.

Tailleferres Pastorale für Flöte und Klavier von 1942 hat einen beschwingten 6/8-Takt und weist ein bezaubernd schlichtes diatonisches Flötenthema auf; ihr ruhiger Höhepunkt wird unbegleitet mittels einer Serie skalisch abgestufter Triller erreicht.
