The Musical Notation of the Primary Motive of the Merry Symphony


The Musical Notation of the Secondary Motive of the Merry Symphony

* * *

This orchestral composition begins with the primary motive of the symphony performed on a wooden flute. This melody is accompanied by horns and clarinet playing a slow trill of eighth notes and a string section sustaining long tones. The pizzicato strings enter at bar five playing a portion of the secondary motive in half-time. At bar nine, the bassoon (accompanied by a marching snare) begins playing a minor key variation of the secondary motive of the symphony over the full instrumentation of the first section. After this section is complete, the clarinet plays its own individual melody that is enhanced by the horns playing the sixteenth note trills until it presents a piece of the first motive that is answered by the bassoon three times. A solo trumpet (accompanied by finger cymbals and tambourine) then presents the secondary motive in its correct form as a trumpet and bassoon play the eighth note trills. After this section is through, the secondary motive is presented in its minor key variation with a bold French horn section that is accompanied by low brass, timpani, cymbal crashes, and a concert bass drum. Clarinet and bassoon play a figure based on a portion of the secondary motive in this climactic portion of the work. After this climax winds down, the bassoon finishes of the work by playing a variation of the secondary theme in its upper register.
