Quick Overview

Movement two begins with a horn solo and emphasizes the semitone, then chords in the guitar lead to a section which sounds much like an improvisation. Suddenly, this calm mood is interrupted by a scherzo-like middle section, which is fast and rather coquettish. It rushes toward a climax only to return to the slow movement of the beginning, which brings the movement to a very calm and quiet end.
