Movement 2 completed
11 minutes, 34 pages, 214 bars of B flat minor tintinnabulating tremolo! I’m having a half bottle of champagne to celebrate, as this is the first movement I’ve completed* in over a year.
This brings me to a total of 3 completed movements, and 3 almost completed movements. I might be able to finish another one before I go to London on Tuesday if I really work my ass off. The 6th movement has very little left to be done, I think, so that’ll be the one.
*completed is a bit of a funny word for me. No piece of music is ever really finished. I just send out the best possible draft I think I can get to, without overworking the piece. In this case, what I’ve finished is the first draft of the 2nd movement. There are some things that will probably be tweaked, and all of the formatting needs to be done, but I’m not going to do any formatting on the piece at all until it’s completely finished.
