What Do You Notice About Vivaldi’s Concerto “Il Grosso Mogul”?

It’s a strange concerto. I have already made a list in the piece’s transcription of “noteable characteristics”. If anyone has anything to add, I guess you could suggest something here or in the comments. Harmony, melody, rhythm, and anything else—I just want to know as much as possible about this intriguing piece!

(Please use the YouTube playback! Click on the mixer and change “MuseScore audio” to “YouTube playback”. I think you need to be on a computer and not a phone for this.)

@Caters I’ve seen your own transcriptions and thought you might be interested!

Stuck in my harmonic analysis, need some help

So everything went fine in my harmonic analysis of Rondo a Capriccio. That is, until I reached bar 281 in my score. I know that there are 4 sequences in a row. And I know that during these 4 sequences, it modulates from G major to Ab major.

Sequence 1:
Bars 281-288
Trill sequence

Right hand

Scale step down, Scale step up, Scale step down, Third down

Left hand
Same as or inverted relative to the right hand(it changes and about half of it doesn't include the third but instead has a rest)

Sequence 2:
Bars 289-292
Scale sequence

Right hand
3 scale steps down(4 sixteenths), third up

Left hand
Step up, third down

Sequence 3
Bars 293-303
Chromatic diminished 7th sequence

Right hand
Diminished 7th Alberti bass for 2 bars, going up 1 half step per bar, Major scale on second half step, skip of a third between lower note of second and third diminished seventh 

Left hand
Minor third, minor third up a half step, single note up a half step, skip of a third between single note and next minor third

Sequence 4
Bars 304-312
Dominant sequence
C minor chord breaks it off from the previous sequence

Right hand
Minor third above the octave in the first bar, skip by a third to the next 3 bars, all of it Alberti bass except the scale in the last 2 bars

Left hand
Octave in first bar, Major third in second bar with bass note up a fourth, Bass note up a half step in third bar, Bass note down a half step in the fourth bar

I'm not sure how to analyze all these sequences except the last one, the dominant sequence. Could somebody help me with this part of my harmonic analysis? Here is the link to the score:

Ocean sounds

Hi I'm very new at this,I get melodies in my head but am struggling to write them down.  I want an ocean feel and am not really sure how to evoke it, as I want melodies to fit 3 poems I've written about the apostles, Peter, Andrew and John.  I can hear the feeling I want to create I just can't work out how to get it on paper as it were
