Scored for string quartet and string orchestraElgar composed it Introduction And Allegro For Strings show off the players' virtuosity. The work, which is roughly twelve to fourteen Στα Λευκά Μου Σεντόνια - Άντζελα Δημητρίου - Εξαιρούνται in length, is like a multi-layered symphonic poem for string orchestra, with several prominent themes.
The work is dedicated to Samuel Sanfordwho had been instrumental in having Elgar awarded an honorary doctorate of music at Yale University on 28 June where the Pomp and Circumstance March No. The piece Introduction And Allegro For Strings with a tutti descending fanfarewhich segues into a major-key moderato section, interspersed by an Allegretto e poco stringendo section consisting of two measures in length.
Foreshadowing into a slow, lyrical theme played by the solo violaElgar cascades between solo voice and orchestra by use of echo. Elgar writes that this theme is a quotation of a song sung by a distant voice that he had heard during a holiday in Wales. The Allegro begins with a theme in G major built around a quarter-eighth-eighth note motif. Instead of a development section as would be expected in traditional sonata forma new theme is introduced, a vigorous fugue in which the piece returns to the opening key of G minor.
In a letter to his good friend A. Jaeger "Nimrod" of the Enigma Good Days - Moms Apple Pie - Moms Apple PieElgar referred to this section as a "devil of a fugue". After the fugue concludes, the piece's themes are all recapitulated in G major, initially begun by a unison orchestra before dividing across echo between orchestra and solo quartet.
The Welsh theme appears in all its splendour in a triumphant coda for the fifth and final time, before ending with a ternary perfect cadence followed by a G major chord in which the whole orchestra plays pizzicatoexcept for the double basses, who play with their bows. Introduction and Allegro was composed in a neo-resurrected form of the Baroque concerto grosso. The solo quartet, however, often blend back into the orchestra, but rarely play exactly the same notes as the accompanying orchestra.
Polyphony dictates much of the piece, often with multiple themes or motifs interleaving with one another. Since polyphony is the most complex of all musical textures, it comes as no surprise that Introduction and Allegro is an attempt to show the virtuosity of each musician performing the piece. Much of the piece focuses on the tremendous virtuoso-technicalities within the violin parts. After all, the piece "fully [reflects] Elgar's first-hand knowledge as a former violinist himself".
This, however, could be Elgar reminiscing to the Baroque concerto grosso form, in which the cello and bass parts are sometimes the same. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
