Here’s a cadenza my daughter came up with, by mixing parts of the original score and changing them a little bit, e.g changing the key. She is unsatisfied with two things here. Maybe you could give me a hint how to fix this?
Instrument is cello.
The final goal is, starting at the end of measure 10, to move from minor (in fact its phrygian mode, isn’t it?) to G major in measure 13. The notes given in green are mandatory and can not be changed, except for articulation of course.
A secondary goal seems to be to add a little bit of bagpipe feel :-) which she likes very much (me too) and Boccherini too. I think thats why she added the quote in measures 11 and 12.
She really loves her cadenza so if I could help her a little bit to fix the following two problems that would be of great help.
The first problem of interest is at the end of measure 10. The blue notes are a transition intended to glue that parts together. This transition doesn’t work well. Do you have some hints how to do this smarter? Can you explain to beginners, why it doesn’t work?
The second problem of interest is the transition from minor to major from measure 12 to 13. This transition too doesn’t sound smooth. It sounds like it is simply stuck together. Do you have any suggestion how to improve the situation a tiny little bit here?
The notes in yellowish-olive color are an automatic function of musescore not relevant here, it indicates that these notes are more difficult to play due to their pitch.
