In the midst of the excitement, Bilbo and Frodo share a thoughtful moment and an unspoken farewell while Shore introduces the first tender chords of the Shire theme’s Hymn Setting and hints of A Hobbit’s Understanding.

Enter Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin “Pippin” Took, the Shire’s resident pair of youthful rapscallions. Shore tosses the hobbits’ characteristic open fourth and fifth intervals (derived from the Skip Beat and Outline Figure) around the orchestra’s strings and winds. “I wanted to make it hobbity—but orchestrally hobbity!—so it didn’t overpower, but added excitement,” Shore describes. The phrases playfully pick up speed as an unexpected display of pyrotechnics disrupts Bilbo’s soirée.
