Description: As Rosa prepares to leave for Chicago (now in a feverish state of delirium), we hear a complex combination of layers of the theme "Chicago"; the woodwinds play the three-note motif in overlapping statements that build in intensity; on top of this, Steiner adds a separate group of musicians (a Dixieland Band) that was recorded separately with an unsettling "echo chamber" effect; the layers do not necessarily correspond, with the Dixieland musicians sometimes improvising different licks; the overall effect is one of confusion, madness, and delirium
