Hey, this was actually fun to write. Go figure. Must be time to put an empty orchestral score on the screen and start gritting my teeth, again. ;p

Don't tell the purists that the recapitulation in the first movement here is a tritone removed from the exposition; I refuse to be held responsible for the apoplectic attacks that information might inspire: (1) C-Eb-Gb (2) Ab-Bb-A (3) G-E-F (4) Db-B-D.
