the 2nd movement Andante sostenuto, Bertold Hummel prepared the following
A bars 1-19
B bars 20-33
Coda bars 46-48
= 16 bars, always with 2-bar phrases which undergo melodic development. The bars
18+19 are a reminiscence of the first two bars.
B = from bar 20 on,
a new idea gains influence above a pedal-point A. The bars 25+26 reflect
on the first bar of the movement.
From bar 27 on, the 2nd idea appears above
a pedal-point D. The bars 32+33 reflect once again on the first bar and
are seen as a bridge to A┤ = Reprise, lasting 12 bars, now based on a fundamental
Coda = The Coda finds its way back to the original tonality
and leads the melodic material of bars 1+2 in augmentation and with the accompanying
function of the beginning to a closing pp.
