Inspired by the events of the Cuban Missile Crisis, John Pasternak’s The Crisis is a programmatic reflection of that tense period in American history. This piece was composed after the composer read a book about the events of the crisis. Dedicated “to all those who fought for peace in October, 1962,” Pasternak chronicles several of the crisis with several of the important points from the conflict including: The Trigger, ExComm, Quarantine and Blockade, The U.N., Standoff, Plane Downed, and finished with a representation of John F. Kennedy’s speech, “What Kind of Peace Do We Seek?” This piece is an exciting way to explore this important historical event.
