Our Daily Sykes #371 – Concerto Grosso

We will search for or suggest a musical analogy for this landscape.  It is not a sonata, nor a concerto.  There are many parts played and sections too.  But it does not seem a symphony either.  The clouds are a good sized section on their own.  The small river running through it may be the basso continuo, and the green brush in the foreground a section for percussion, but subtle – almost mute.  I’ll imagine it as a concerto grosso, perhaps one by Corelli.  Still its not I  Musici or St. Martins in the Field that is playing.  A highway curves into it and out – a child crying in the balcony.  (Click to Enlarge – probably twice)
