Description
Description: According to Steiner's original intentions, this would have been the first statement of Lane's theme (cut from film); on-screen Lane smiles and Field and gets ready for their date
Music annotations: [m. 1] mp / delicate; [m. 3] rubato; [m. 5] as before; [m. 8] rall
Orchestration annotations: [m. 1] flt solo + celeste / harp + piano only (let it ring); [m. 3] 8 viol / mf strgs only / 6 violins / violas / celli; [m. 4] flt + cel; [m. 6] basses; [m. 7] strgs only; [m. 8] 2 clts / harps / add b'ssn
Analysis: Lane's theme is constructed from two motives: X in measure 1 (and 2) and Y in measure 3 (and 4); the second statement uses mode mixture to create a tinge of melancholy in an otherwise light-hearted theme
