    Which composers wrote Stretto techiques or voice entries?

    I heard Beethoven,Haydn,Mozart,brahms do it alittle bit in some symphonies but do you guys know which composers used this alot beside bach?

    What Symphonies used Strettos alot or parts or sections ?
    I just need the names of the composes and what symphonie number that used these stretto techiques would be nice

    Stretto means: When two or more subject entries overlap in time.overlapping entries

    Hey, Walters.

    Hey - what is the best way to get a good bass sound?

    Do I have to have new strings?

    Tell us! :hyper:
  4. When I think of "stretto", the piece which always comes to my mind is J. S. Bach's Two Part Invention #14 in Bb - check out the end of measure #16 - the subject sounds as though it has entered before it should, but it's so perfect, so beautiful that even though it sounds early, it is in fact, exactly in its correct place!

    Ah! JSB "The Master"!

    My favorite is the one in Bartok's "Music for Strings" about a minute before the climax. I always imagine I hear grass growing and popping through the earth during that section. Or the wonderful section in the last section of the lastmovement in Mozart 41, for that matter.
