Talk:Barcarola No.1, Op.20 (Martucci, Giuseppe)

How does cadenza relate to main piece?

Hi. I was just wondering how the manuscript fragment described as "Cadenza" relate to the main piece. I've just looked through both, and I can't see any place in the Barcarole where the cadenza might fit. The two are both in A-flat major, but that seems about all they have in common: the Barcarole is in 6/8 time, and the cadenza in 3/4 time. The cadenza looks like the end of a piece, or at least the end of a theme or section, but nothing like any part of the Barcarole.

Can anyone explain how these two relate to each other? Thanks. M.J.E. 12:06, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
