III. Pastiche from Sinfonietta for String Orchestra- Excerpt
Sinfonietta for String Orchestra is a petite symphony in three movements. The first movement, I. Hommage, is dedicated to all lost love and loved ones. The form is a loose rondo in six sections (ABACBA). The first section opens with a mournful descending line in the first violins. Beginning with imitation based on a two-measure motive, II. Jeu Jeu, plays with rests, slurs, and staccatos in a five-part form (ABACA). III. Pastiche is a combination of melodies, with the melodies playing happily together or juxtaposed together in a six-part form (ABACBC).
