The next free transformation of the original nature motive is the bold motive of Donner. He himself sings this as he calls up a storm in scene four of Rheingold and he's echoed by the horns.

Erster Aufzug: Einleitung

Composition of the Day 2015.09.08 09:00

By the time Richard Wagner came along with his opera Tristan and Isolde, this expressivity had hit an all-time high. Somehow, in the very first few bars of Tristan, Wagner had already created a music that was so dissonant, so expressive, so chromatic, so wandering in its modulations from key to key that the poor listener had almost lost his tonal bearings. He didn't know where he was; he was hard put to it to find a tonic home plate. Where are we in this music? We are suspended in some highly perfumed region, floating around in an atmosphere of unconsummated desire.

The Joy of Music, Leonard Bernstein
