Description
Description: Over the sound of the train music, the Titus motif is heard as we see Field in the train car with his fiancée; he seems preoccupied with thoughts of Lane; the presence of the Titus motif, which rises in a chromatic sequence, suggests trouble in their relationship (caused by Titus); turbulent accents represent his conflicting emotions; the music disappears under a train whistle (which fades into the love theme)
On-screen: Field and Annabelle in a train car
Music annotations: [m. 85] cresc; [m. 88] ff; [m. 90] col

Analysis: Clashing ostinato continue under the Titus motif
