    The melody was mostly dominated/played by the strings along with the piano, being a homophony at times. The sounds the music gave was a sense of uncertainty and confusion to the audience. In the third and final movement of the concerto, the speed was sped up to allegro vivace assai, but the sound stayed at the same dynamic. In contrast to the second movement, the third movement was fast paced and was energetic til the end. The flutes would normally respond to the piano with repetition of each other melodies.…

    25 as piano plays the accompaniment like what it did in the exposition, playing some triplet arpeggios in the tonic key (E major). Instead of flute and clarinet playing the main theme of the movement, the violins take their role and play the theme. However, piano didn’t repeat the theme this time and the theme is continued playing by the violins in Bar 3-4 at Score Fig. 26. In addition, there is a conversation between the piano and violins as well.…

    The lower neighbor motif was first presented in the Primary area in mm. 1-2 in the cellos and basses (D-C#-D-A), and is expanded now in the transition. The flutes play the melody in m. 48, which is an echo of what the violins previously played, and involves the same lower neighbor and turning motifs. However, the melody turns higher than the first phrase, reaching up to F#6 before descending stepwise. The horns and clarinet in A join in at m. 50 with an ascending third and descending whole steps.…

    At 2:00 it is all incorporated into one complete melody. They all play different notes creating a beautiful harmony that intertwines these sounds together. At 3:00, they have begun to play in a minor key which resembles with a more somber form of playing. They also begin to speed up, the cello playing in quarters, while the rest of them playing in sharp eighths. At 4:00 returns to the main melody.…

    it is probably another hand-crossing piece, like the gigue of partita no.1; the division of notes between the hands, calls for the right hand to cross over the left, reaching deep into the bass. In the allemande, a short theme containing triplet-sixteenths is developed in two-part imitative counterpoint and then inverted after the double bar. The courante is an example of the dance that could have served equally well as a prelude or a sonata movement. Three times the treble makes a conspicuous climb to d: the first two times it is part of a dissonant chord and only the third time is consonant, when the two hands move in contrary motion to the outer limits of Bach’s keyboard compass at the close. The sarabande is of the trio type with numerous appoggiaturas,…

    Bars 113-132 The second theme of the development has a variation between bars 113-120 (Figure 6). The melody of the variation is in octaves, and it has the inner voice in the right hand part of the piano. When Rachmaninoff established a solid big phrase, and the tempo was not too fast, he would still play all the details clearly, just as he performed bars 109 to 112 from the first movement of his Piano Concerto No.2. From bars 121-124 and 126-130, the extended measures after the variation canonically repeat at the octave (played by oboe and clarinet) while the piano continues the canon (Chung, 1988). Cliburn's emphasis is on letting the melodies sing, and he does so admirably, with an unforced, golden tone that hearkens back to the early 20th century heyday of great pianism (Nancy, 1994).…

    Piano Concerto starts out with medium dynamics and has many instruments playing the same quick melody. However, it slowly fades and the piano plays a solo that is slow, light, and dainty. Soon other instruments start to come in and blend together, but the piano stands out because it has a different melody. The violins start tention while the trumpets also join in and create a melody that is similar to a victory sound. Finally the piano takes over and gets a solo that is soon accompanied with the strings.…

    After eight measures, the piece becomes quiet and hopeful again. The woodwinds play the same theme, but with softer dynamics and harmonies. The brass are cut out, but return one at a time, reintroducing the turmoil from before. Dynamics and pitches begin to move upward again while the harmonies get closer and more dissonant. Another build up, but longer than the first, leading to another fall, but bigger than before.…

    For half of whole piece, the slow melody of major chords in low pitches make me feel like someone is telling a story, with dynamic created by different softness on pressing keyboard. Than after the slow melody, the tempo shifts (it becomes a faster melody), and the piece started more intense. These two pieces are technically demanding, not only because part of pieces' tempo are fast and with quick scales, fast arpeggios apply on both hands; but also the performer needs to put in a lot of feelings into the slower melody, which is a big challenge for the…
