Commentary by Left Brain and Right Brain. LB: "The 4 movements are in C Minor, A Major, A Minor and C Major respectively. C Major and A Minor have identical key signatures, whereas C Minor and A Major are distantly related. This 1st movement is a Sonata Allegro: brief Introduction, Exposition, fugato Development, Recapitulation and Coda." RB: "All right, Weisenheimer, I have a few tricks up my sleeve too. Theme I and Theme II have 4-phrase structures: AABA. Behold, their 3rd phrase is the same Chorale, which evolves into a quasi-theme. And that's not all, folks! Theme II glides through 3 or 4 tonalities; lyrical, yet it hogs all the keys. The fugato development in F-Sharp Minor chops up parts of the Introduction, Theme I, Theme II and the Chorale. Pretty snazzy eh?" LB: "Technical structures are generally my concern." RB: "Good thing I kept an eye on practical details. The 1st draft of this movement almost killed the tuba player. We could have renamed it Totentanz f�r Ba�tuba. The tuba is a huge instrument with an enormous need of air, so I inserted far more rests for everybody to breathe. Otherwise we'd need a hybrid bagpipe-tuba for extremely long breaths."
