MMU AP Theory
Theme is the part in the beginning with the chords.. transitioning to the 16 note melody line ending at the first fermata.
This piece is for my AP Music Theory third quarter composition assignment and consists of a theme and three variations thereupon. The theme motive is something I have had stuck in my head for a while, and seems to be at least somewhat based on Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite No.1, Op.46, IV. In the Hall of the Mountain King.
This is a motive for a Theme and Variation, written in a style similar to that commonly used by Chopin. Update: Instead of having put all of my noteflight entries into the same document, I made a new entry for all of them. Here's the others: Variation No. 1: mflms-mmu.learning.noteflight.com/scores/view/147e23524eebc5ec77a060d0b1651595ecae33a5 Variation No. 2: mflms-mmu.learning.noteflight.com/scores/view/e75301f53f75b9852be79205de8a28a2d20b837d
A rough draft for the second variation with the melody swapped into the bass part/cello section. The top part, now with the harmony, is a violin solo instead of a section like the cello. I also fixed the harmony line in general to have less "stuff" to bring out the familiar melody.
Went through the piece and fixed the cello line, looking at making some of the harmony simpler and also having no notes lower than the C. I changed the piece by adding a key change with the different harmony to elevate the composition and hopefully bring it farther than it would without the change.
Piece written like its in 6/8 in some spots but in 2/4.
