The Vivace starts with the two hands playing parallel thirds, followed by a scintillating dialogue, and coming together in thirds again to modulate to
a different key. Interesting new ideas abound, and much use is made of trills and held notes. A single measure in the pedal transitions smoothly to an
abbreviated form of the beginning. In the Largo long held notes in one hand intertwine with an expressive lyrical motive, underpinned by a prodding
bass line. The Allegro has two main themes, the first bold and forthright, the second angular, almost brash, which provide contrasting sections but
are not used together. Trills and held notes figure in this last movement as well.
