Sonata For Horn and PianoSy Brandon - Co-Op Press
Publisher Desc. The first movement is heroic in style. The movement is in a modified sonata form. The recapitulation begins with the secondary theme, then the closing theme and finally the main theme, therefore creating an arch form. The second movement is bluesy and uses a slight twist of the blues scale. Normally the lowered third is in the melody and the normal 3rd in the harmony. While this occurs in this movement, the reverse also occurs. The normal third is in the melody and the lowered third is in the harmony. Frequent use of both the normal and lowered versions of the 5th and 7th also occur.a The form builds to a climax about two-thirds through before returning to the opening material. The third movement is in a modified rondo form. The asymmetrical meter idea that is focus of the A theme is carried over into the B theme where it begins with 4 measures of 5/8 followed by alternating 2/4 and 3/4. The character is similar to the A theme. The C theme is radically different and sounds more like a development with its repeated Horn notes and changing harmonies underneath. After the C section, the themes return as B followed by A and a coda. The odd meters, articulation, and dynamic surprises create a lighter, more humorous movement.
