Movement 1: Allegro moderato
Movement 2: Andante
Movement 3: Allegro
Harmonically, the interval of the fourth is decisive and its use is typical of Berkeley’s method at the time. This, combined with strong rhythmic interest, gives the work a neo-classic feel. Of equal importance, however, as always in Berkeley’s music, are the contrasting sections where melody predominates.
