The Vivace [RH - Hoofdwerk: Holpijp 8' + Octaaf 4' + Mistuur 3 st.;

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 [RH - Hoofdwerk: Holpijp 8' + Roerfluit 4';
LH - Zwellwerk: Roerfluit 8' + Gemshoorn 8' + Tremulant
Pedaal: Gedekt 8] long held notes in one hand intertwine with an expressive lyrical motive, underpinned by a prodding bass line. The Allegro
[RH - Hoofdwerk: Prestant 8' + Octaaf 4' + Mixtuur 3 st.;
LH - Zwellwerk: Roerfluit 8' + Prestant 4' + Octaaf 2' + Sesquialter 2 st.;
Pedaal: Subbas 16' + Gedekt 8 + Koraal 4'] 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.
