Sonata 2 has a second movement that opens with a melodic-harmonic formula but strikes out along a new path in the following slow movement, conceived as a kind of instrumental recitative.

from notes by Michael Talbot © 1994

La Sonate 2 a un deuxième mouvement qui débute par une formule mélodique-harmonique, mais s’engage sur une nouvelle voie dans le mouvement lent suivant, conçu comme une sorte de récitatif instrumental.

Die Sonate 2 hat einen ähnlichen zweiten Satz, der mit der gleichen melodischharmonische Formel beginnt, schlägt jedoch neue Wege ein im anschließenden langsamen Satz, der als eine Art instrumentales Rezitativ angelegt ist.
