Diabelli Project 177 - String Trio, Mvt. 2C

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme, these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

This string trio series is a bit of a departure. I'm still flash composing, with a 10-minute time limit to write as much as I can. Instead of starting over each week, I'll be attempting to pick up where I left off from the previous week for my 10-minute session. 

This is the third part of the second movement. The grayed out area was where I stopped last week.

In this section, the solo instrumental duties transfer from the violin to the viola. The quintuplet accompanying figure continues. The violin steps back to take over from the viola. In the next part I'm sure the viola solo will continue. But after that? I'm not sure. We'll find out together.

As always, you can use any or all of the posted Diabelli Project sketches as you wish for free. Just be sure to share the results. I'm always curious to see what direction someone else can take this material.
