|Comments:||The first movement, in classical sonata form, is in 5/4 time and make much use of the Lydian mode (which sounds like a piano scale starting on F and playing only white keys.) The second comprises a set of variations on a theme, "Ey Ich Sach in dem Trone" by Heinrich "Frauenlob" von Meissen, a 13th century minnesinger (German version of the Troubadour and predecessor of the Meistersinger). The final movement - like the first, in sonata form and employing Lydian mode - is rumbustious, even slapstick, and is technically very demanding.|
