Five major sections, the first two in Common Meter, ending with a very "blue" note that ushers in some heavy chromaticism (made even more colorful by
the Silbermann tuning) in 3/2. The meter switches to Common again just 2 measures before a loud transitional passage which ushers in a delightfully
bouncy 12/8 motiv that continues to the end.
