So I was going to work on IV. Lento tonight, but I couldn’t come up with anything. I wanted either to replace the heavy bit from two days ago or to interpolate a softer, tenser segment. But I couldn’t write the first note. It was very weird.
In true Lichtenbergian fashion, I fell back on III. Allegro gracioso, and at least for that I came up with a decent phrase. Here’s the bare bones sketch.
