Quartet for Horns movement 1, Op. 39 No. 1
This quartet is a fine example of my first period I Ching scales. You can see the rhythm eighth, eighth, quarter in the first two measure, which suggests - - + - - + (I ching #24) Then, since I generally used two hexagrams in contrast, Quarter, followed by five short notes which suggest + - - - - - ( I ching #24)
The scale outlined tonally seems to be more: - - + - + + I guess I look back at my notes . . . and seem what I did!
