Description
Description: Ethereal statement of the Destiny motto in the upper strings, with an upward reach replacing the melodic falling gesture
On-screen: Joe tells Mabel he loves her
Music annotations: [m. 96] pp / tranquillo / ethereal (Kuhshit); [m. 97] ppp / tremolo (delicato); [m. 98] rall / ppp / morendo
Film annotations: [m. 96] Sure
Orchestration annotations: [m. 96] divisi / cel - added / harp; [m. 97] harp / vibra / harp + cello [m. 98] harp solo
Analysis: The Fate motto appears again, with an inverted y motive; this is harmonized with a yearning cto7 of V over a tonic pedal, but never resolves because they are interrupted by Charlie
