The main theme of the first movement is built on a deliberately 'square' 4 note scale figure; this is interlaced with perfect 4th 'wobbles' and triplets, and together they weave tonal games in a capricious journey.
Four rich chords (all essentially triads with added semitones) which open out, bloom and close again are the flowers displayed in the tranquil second movement, and for the final a jaunty but restrained dance through various tonalities grows out of the subtle thematic combination of notes from both C and F sharp, normally the most distant keys.
