II.v progress report (2)

Earlier today, I worked through the section of Debussy-&-Жар-птица allusions, a passage which I half dreaded that I would return to, after all this time, and find it lacking;  but I find it quite well done.  Well, I still like it, at any rate.

And now I am at a perky, almost-frenetic dance which I had completely forgotten.  The accompanying sustained chords have the winds staggering their breaths, and so that bit of the dance is fairly time-consuming to re-create;  but the result is everything I should wish.

Before long, I shall get to the Egyptian Dance, but I don't imagine I should finish that tonight.
