A ritornello form. The introduction of the main theme, the tune of a continuous but highly textured nature, is followed by a quasi-soloistic section. The sharply articulated sounds in the higher registers give way to the full ensemble of section 3's ritornello. Section 4 is a strongly polyphonic region, contrasting the apparently random sounds of the lower voices with the more continuous sound of the flying sound. Ritornello. An allusion (illusion) (nay, or baahhh!! quotation?) from Strauss' Don Quixote where instruments imitate sheep. (What silliness). Many try to be soloists, some sing out of tune. (A rather amateur performance, and in some ways sheepish.) Ritornello. The last episode is, of course, inspired by Philip Glass and/or Steve Reich. A solid and often original perormance in this section. Ritornello. And all they are, are frogs. Flamingo, Florida. KA
