    This was composed in 1962. The first movement is classically structured, with a gracefully contoured first subject, a forceful ensuing idea and a murmurously lyrical second subject; the second movement generates an intensity of feeling which is the greater for the very restraint of its language; and the finale effectively introduces calm moments to offset the prevailing syncopated ebullience.
