Hi! I'm writing the finale of my string sextet, and I've been in a creative drought for the last 6 months because of personal issues. I wanted this to be the finale of my 2nd piano sonata, but yesterday I decided to switch the finales of the sonata and the sextet. Today I've rescored it for strings.
It's supposed to be in sonata form. I have the intro, the 1st theme, the transition, and the start of a 2nd theme. I also have ideas for a development. I'm thinking of employing (maybe!) cyclical form, i.e. quoting the previous movements as in Frack's symphony or Ravel's sonatina. I think the concept can make the structure cooler, and I'm lazy, so repurposing previous material can save me work XD
I'm not sure of the 2nd theme, not sure if it fits. I'd love it to have very chromatic and nonfunctional harmonies and raise up to a climax... But so far, no luck.
