The present work consists of four movements in the tempo-sequence slow – fast – slow – fast: the 'classic' structure associated especially with Corelli. The slow movements are lyrical, the fast movements brilliant, and clearly of Corellian inspiration. Especially characteristic of Albicastro is the extended third movement where there are modulations to various keys and prominent Neapolitan chords.
