The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
When I write my piano pieces – I call them bagatelles -
I most often write them in the ABA form. That means that I start
with a melody passage or theme. Then I switch to
a second melody passage or variation of that theme. And finally I repeat the first passage to end it. That’s the ABA form.
(Personal note: In my case I like to do a major key part, then minor key, then back to the major key to end it).
What other creatures compose music in the ABA form?
Whales! The songs are by males during mating season! Talk about being a big romantic!
We had no winner. Your thinking was fishy (it should have been mammalian!)

Pizzicato is when the string player plucks the strings instead of using a bow. This classical composer’s 3rd movement of one of his symphonies had the string section play pizzicato throughout. Name the composer and the symphony.
