The third Interlude in this series is the earliest written. Just as the other Interludes incorporated elements taught in a theory curriculum for both written and aural theory 3, this one too does as well. The element prominently used is of course the metric modulation. There are some harmonic elements typical of later 19th century music too. It’s also written in a rounded binary form which was a part of the assignment. That’s all well and good as far as the assignment goes, but what I enjoyed about writing was using the romantic harmonies. I hadn’t done anything quite deliberate like this before, one were I was explicit in form and harmony.
I also like E Major. Fits nice in my hands. Download the score for free here!
