Misc. Comments

The first movement is almost like a folk song... simple, straightforward and pretty, with the cello basically supporting the violin tune. The second movement has a dance-like character, still technically not demanding but with fluctuating meters that give it a somewhat quirky character. The third movement is derived from the material of the first movement, with more interplay between the instruments. The fourth movement is brusque and tricky, with much humor and a rollicking development of the material.
