It didn't take me long to get over the hurdle of where to go next. The inspiration came while I was at concert of the Verde Valley Sinfonietta on Saturday Night. The 2nd piece on the program was a Mozart Clarinet Concerto and the first movement is a sonata form where the orchestra plays the themes then the clarinet. It was this simple form of repetition that gave me the idea of where I needed to go next in this 2nd movement.
I was originally thinking that I needed a change of thematic material at measure 11 where all I needed was a change in instrumentation. I put the tuba line from the first 10 measures in the right hand of the piano and gave the left hand a combination of what the two habns were doing before, although I used more left hand material than right hand. I also elaborated the right hand with harmony at times and extra notes so that the ideas flow a little more when compared to the first 10 measures.
I continued on at measure 21 with a quieter tuba line and a more flowing piano part. This section is like a quiet seething. The alternating eighth note accompaniment is varied as the hands switch beats after 2 measures. I expect to continue on in this manner for a while.
