Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Opus 5 No 6 is cast in a three-movemement pattern, with an opening slow movement followed by a lengthy, elaborate Allegro; the last movement, cast in the rhythm of a minuet, is a set of variations (or ‘divisions’, for the continuo part remains unchanged throughout) of ever-increasing complexity.
