Quixote’s theme is first presented in the solo cello part and is soon joined by solo violin and English horn. The second theme is first found in the bass clarinet and tenor tuba. The themes are said to mimic the voices and feelings of the two characters. The piece doesn’t always have a clear-cut form, but it uses elements of concerto and variations. The first theme can we heard in the form of windmills as seen in measure 60-78.
The composer, however, was less enthusiastic. To his pupil Czerny he said once: "people always talk about my Sonata in C-sharp minor. I did write better ones for example the one in F-sharp minor, and other things.." The Sonata is a "quasi Fantasia" not by its structure which is more conservative than the opus 27 N.1, but rather by the illusion of an improvisation that the first movement has to create. As André Boucourechliev said: "the theme floats all over it. Sometimes on top, sometimes beneath the musical texture."
Baroque music is a category of European Classical music and is recognized for ornamentation added to long melodic lines, the addition and use of harpsichord and basso continuos. Another was the development of counterpoint, which is when two or more melodies are combined that contrast with each other (Tollervey, Nicholas H.). Bach is well known for his use of counterpoint and fugue. ("Baroque Orchestral Music."). During this time period, musical components such
The introduction of the piece is the same as that of “The Raiders March”, but with strings playing in the background. The A melody begins with the trumpet as the strings fade out (0:07). The first minute and a half of the song is played the same as that of “The Raiders March”, though due to differing sound equalization, some parts stick out more or less than they do in the original. For example, in the third repetition of the A melody, one can more clearly hear the xylophone accompanying the melody here than in “The Raiders March”. The piece begins to differ more significantly after the break following the third repetition of the A melody when the piece modulates down a half step instead of up like in the original (1:37).
Theme B (section B); 4.16 modulacije This second section is known as Breast Milky (2:55-5:26). The theme is a complete contrast to the section A because while the melody in section A is loud and playful the melody in theme B is calm and peaceful. The section B is shaped in a form called sonata. The section starts with cellos’ solo accompanied by the hammond organ. The music has again a romantic “allurg”, which is the characteristic of progressive rock music of XXth century.
Hector Berlioz (1803-1869) was one of the most well-known composers of the romantic period. In 1826, he enrolled as a student at the Conservatoire de musique et de declamation in Paris, where he began his musical journey. At this conservatory, he proceeded to create some of his most famous compositions such as his Symphonie Fantastique (Samson, 2007: ). This renowned composition was dedicated to Harriet Smithson, whom he later got married to. The program of the Symphonie Fantastique concerns Berlioz who, unhappy in love swallowed an overdose of opium, where he survived the powerful drug, but in his hallucination experiences he has impassioned dreams of the Shakespearian actress Harriet Smithson.

Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) was born on 18th of June, 1882, in Oranienbaum. The environment he grew up affects him greatly in his future as an influential musician.

Nowhere a solid V - I (dominant - tonic) evolution is seen during that first exposition of the main theme. The 24 bars long repeating pedal note D on the bass, acting sometimes as the tonic root and at other times as root of dominant to G major creates an enchanting and unique atmosphere. One other beautiful second theme starting at F-sharp minor evolves towards A major. This theme is also set up in a very particular arrangement. It is fully orchestral the melody is conveyed with both hands at two octaves distance filled with tremolos all figuring a strings orchestra setting with first violins and cellos at the cantabile part and second violins and altos "filling
