Divertimentois in three movements. The first movement Frolic has three main thematicideas. The first contains dotted rhythms, staccato articulation, and meterchange. The second thematic idea is related to the first in that it also usesdotted rhythms and meter change, but is more legato and begins with more sustainednotes. The third thematic section is thinner in texture, more playful, and hasa legato theme over a staccato background. The motivic material in each ofthese sections has similarities. Contrast is primarily obtained through changeof style and mood. These thematic ideas develop throughout the movement byvarying key, instrumentation, and melodic material. There are several sectionsof imitation that are very energetic.

Thesecond movement Ballad is lyrical at an Andante tempo. The form of themovement is through-composed as the motives develop into new variations insteadof having clearly

distinguishedthemes. There is however a recapitulation that brings the listen back to the openingmaterial. The main motives that develop are a sixteenth note pattern that isarpeggiated and also stepwise, a dotted quarter and eighth note idea that isoften on weak beats as well as appearing on strong beats, and scalewise eighthnote lines. All of these interweave among the parts with frequent counterpointand some imitation. The harmony is lush with seventh chords used frequently.

Thelast movement Tarantella is in a lively tempo. The form of this movementis a large ABA(Scherzo, Trio, Scherzo). The A sections are in triple meterwhile the B section is in duple. The A section is in three parts, forming anABA within the large A. The material for the first part is motivically derived.The first motive is a dotted eighth, sixteenth, eighth note followed by eveneighth notes. The second motive is four chromatic sixteenth notes followed byan eighth note. This motive appears both ascending and descending. The Bsection within this large A consists of a slurred melodic line that has bothstepwise motion and leaps. It is accompanied by staccato chromatic eighthnotes. The large B section is folksong-like and is in a recognizable binaryform that repeats in a new key. The large A serves as a recapitulation of theopening section and it ends lightly and playfully in keeping with the Divertimentotitle that means to divert or amuse.
