Description
Description: The angry Agitato theme returns (here extended further) as Dan gets into a heated argument with Titus, culminating in a loud stinger as he smashes a bottle on the table
On-screen: Dan argues with Titus
Music annotations: [m. 10] a tempo / tutti / sfz-p subito; [m. 15] arpeggio; [m. 17] crescend; [m. 19] flutter / flutter / rit; [m. 20] stop it / stop it
Film annotations: [m. 10] Dan looks; [m. 20] Into dialogue
Orchestration annotations: [m. 11] strgs W.W. horns only; [m. 17] muted brass / add muted brass / gong p; [m. 20] harp / add piano + celeste (let these ring)
Analysis: This variant strays from the original by repeating m. 12 and 15, then adding an extension that terminates in a dissonant polychord (a Bb triad combined with a C triad and a Db triad over a pedal on B)
