Something's Coming Leonard Bernstein 

Melody is entirely syllabic. 

Alternation of three main themes:

  1. The quiet, syncopated opening theme.
  2. The loud strident theme in 2/4 first heard at bar 21.
  3. The lyrical, slow moving theme, first heard at bar 73.

These three ideas are sometimes alternated a number of times.

Movement builds up in three layers:

  1. Syncopated quaver motif introduced in live guitar and top four guitars one part at a time.
  2. New syncopated quaver motif is introduced this time in the bass guitar.
  3. Sustained motif built around three chords begins in the live guitar.
