Repitition in Music

This is a perfect example of repitition. The melody is repeated in the bass line, and vice versa. This is just a small part from Swan Lake, but it is one of my favorite parts.

I transcribed the music and then repeated it in different keys with different instruments for this song.

(Warning: Once you hear it you will be humming it for the rest of the day.)

Name That Tune

tchaikovsky

 

Here is a little ditty
That I think is almost heavenly
I think it’s very witty
And it premiered in 1870

It was written Peter Ilyad T.
Whose birthday is May 7th
It is 600 bars long, you see
And here are the first eleven
