On III. Allegro gracioso, I accomplished a few things, fiddling with orchestration here and there, plus tweaking that big finish strophe so that it repeats. No ending yet, but I’m thinking I need to listen to it about a dozen times to see how it might end. There’s still the threat of a total revamp, from J. Strauss to R., but if it will come, it will come.
I also whacked out about six measures of Fanfare for Double Bass Duo & Percussion. We’ll see about that one.
I also got a sonnet blocked out for Prairie Home Companion’s contest. I’m afraid I’ve worked myself into a couple of rhyming corners, and of course it doesn’t say what I want it to say yet, but I have until Friday to polish that off.
All in all, a good day. But IV. Largo still looms.
