Description
Description: An ominous, sinister variant of the Titus motif, using it as an ostinato in the lowest register; we hear this variant as soon as Titus sees Lane, so it represents his intense anger towards her
On-screen: Titus sees Lane
Music annotations: [m. 5] poco accell / sfz-p / f; [m. 7] tutti; [m. 9] molto rit / molto crescendo
Film annotations: [m. 3] She looks; [m. 5] She exits; [m. 7] Dan
Orchestration annotations: [m. 1] timp / celli / basses / b'ssns / tuba; [m. 3] horns muted and strgs tremolo / add 3rd trb felt; [m. 5] b clt; [m. 7] (pianos loc) (let it ring); [m. 9] gong
Analysis: This variant features a new twist in the motif with a return to the second pitch, which creates a retrograde statement following each regular statement
