The new piece is now called Waltz (for string quartet & bassoon). I figured I couldn’t just call everything Dance, and I know better than to call it I. Allegro, because I’ll probably never get around to another two movements to make it a true quintet piece.
Anyway, I worked on it this morning and have the first theme exposited, along with a transition into the second theme. Did you know that you can double the length of your exposition by shoving in a repeat?
Here it is so far.
In other news, I’ve hauled out the Fool’s Errand from last summer to give it a look. The path we followed last year, indeed, our very meeting place, is fenced off behind construction now, so I have to head out and see if the soundtrack as it stands will match the new campus topography.
