The Best of Change

“The first melody is a traditionally harmonized, sweet statement of E flat Major in the clarinet (my brother says it reminds him of the BBC theme song). As even the best of things must come to an end, so does this section, melding into an edgy cello and viola line in c minor that incorporates glissando to a significant degree. The violins and winds start to comment over the cello and viola line, gradually drifting away from c minor until it ends in a full blown argument in the winds with the cello and viola line acting as a mediator, interrupting repeatedly with a smooth arpeggio line. After the intense argument, the music falls back to a dark version of the original theme. The title comes from the idea that not even the best of changes could take away from the piece that first original theme, just like nothing in life can truly be destroyed (or even created), only altered.”
