The “silver tree” alludes to an instrument used to perform jazz (probably a saxophone).
Both instruments had a mini solo at the beginning to capture the audience and then they were accompanied by the oboe and clarinet. I might be wrong but, the first movement of this piece seems to be in a heterophonic texture. The variation of sounds among the instruments and the unsteady depiction of a meter seemed odd to my ear but, yet I wanted to keep listening. The piece had a call and response feel to it until the piece transitioned into the second movement. The Allegro molto tone part of this piece was by far the catchy part of the piece because, it started in a swift, quick, and lively tempo which gave it a "peppy" feel.

We can relate with the singer belting out, "Cecilia, you 're breaking my heart" (Simon, 1969) and leaves us agreeing that she certainly is, but we are going to keep on dancing nonetheless. This song has the perfect balance of bass and acoustics that give it a well-rounded sound. Simon and Garfunkel make it enjoyable to sing along with their tremulous voices and easy to comprehend lyrics. After the bridge we are treated to a zany xylophone solo.

The musical’s revolutionary twist on the classic Broadway genre to incorporate hip-hop music showcases America’s diverse population through music and theater. Miranda links these ideas to the music he creates by purposefully crafting each individual character’s unique musical sound to hip-hop and by alluding to cultural aspects of the genre itself to celebrate its place in society and what it has achieved over the years despite the struggle that comes with being a person of color. Though Hamilton faces criticism for being historically inaccurate, the “inaccuracies” of casting historically white figures as people of color highlights the musical’s strong hip-hop influences. By doing this, Miranda is able to generate discussion around the importance of embracing the diversity that lies at America’s very foundation as well as what needs to be done to promote the equal treatment of the minority population that is not only an important part of America’s past but also its
