The music

feelings – Full Score FINAL  This movement 3. guilty, is slow with a pensive intensity. The melody is wide ranging, often as a pentuplet as first heard in the solo viola, agains plodding chords on the beat. That melody is the song of a troubled person. The guilty event/thought that is causing unrest has its own theme, a 4 or 5 note figure: 3 staccato statements of the same pitch followed by a fall of a minor third. At the end, most of the ensemble plays the guilty theme at different tempos simultaneously, to create a ‘guilt cloud’. This didn’t quite work out, as the ‘cloud’ effect needed more voices.
