03: “After work, late at night”, bars 11-18.


Bars 11-18 is an exact repetition of bars 3 -10. Instead of repeating the string  arrangement we already have, let’s create some variation here. In the arrangement below, violin 1 has been divided in two sections. The melody is played by the 2nd division while the 1st section plays a new background line. In bars 16-18 the two divided sections are playing the melody doubled in octaves. Because of the higher octave doubling in violins 1, the basses are placed one octave lower than it shows in the piano part, this creates a nice balance:
