Description
Description: Two pianos play the Titus 2 theme over a dissonant pedal; it seems that Titus is complying with Lane's demands, but the uneasy music hints at deception
On-screen: Titus pretends to make a phone call
Music annotations: [m. 17] p / pp / no tremolo; [m. 18] let it ring; [m. 19] lunga / pp / this connects
Film annotations: [m. 17] Hello!; [m. 19] I guess!
Orchestration annotations: [m. 17] 2 pianos soli (pedal) / strgs only
Analysis: The Titus 2 theme here is consistently harmonized with major seventh chords with a sharp fifth
