However, in bars 6 and 7, section A, the melody gets temporarily lost in the broken chords before finally resolving to E major in bar 8 which resumes the clear melodic line.
I'm wondering; how much of this is intentional and how much is due to the fact that it's more difficult to bring out the melody during this particular part of the piece and so it just doesn't happen often?
I've heard folks who let the melody die completely during this part and others who do a pretty good job of keeping it out in front.
Could you give some examples? I will check them out on Tidal.
I think these bars illustrate the fact that music cannot always be analysed as melody + accompaniment. Even a piece like this one, which is mostly that way, can have sections which are not. The melody that these bars seem to me to imply is not actually there to be played.
