Comments from Professor Belkin on Example No. 1F:
This version keeps all the good features of the previous one, but adds some extra touches:
- the harp underlines important moments: changes of harmony which are especially colorful, and the cadence. Note that the harp does not
play all the time, which would make it less of a special event.
- the first violins are now subdivided into 3 at the cadence, making the final crescendo slightly richer.
