First publication. The first movement (Allegro, 4/4 time) is distinguished by a clear recurring structure characterized by a differentiation in compositional technique and tonal detail. The energetic / lyrical contrast manifests itself in a sequence of contrasting episodes aEUR both within and outside the themes. In its technical development the first movement is modelled on the first movement of Beethoven's String Quartet op. 18/1. Besides thematic, harmonic and figural echoes and similarities such as the time signature and the use of characteristic accentuation, the reduction of the movement's motifs to one central theme is of particular note.
