Diabelli Project 180 - String Trio, Mvt. 3B

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 second part of the third (and final) movement. After the tutti introduction of the first part, the trio starts to break apart. The viola keeps time while the violin and cello trade ascending and descending lines. Not to worry -- there's a point to it all.

Although I ran out of time this week, we'll be arriving at the cadence point with next week's sketch (I think). The grayed area is from the previous post.

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.
