Opens with a slow D minor introduction, which leads into a moderately fast melody, featuring string crossings and is shared around the ensemble. The celli take the melody, accompanied by pizzicato in the other sections. The melody then returns to the upper strings, before a second slow lament. Finally, the dance returns, starting moderately, then accelerating continuously right through to the final bars. The piano part is optional.
