melodic versatility and extended harmony
The truly unique aspect of the work is how it "fits" the idiomatic elements of the tuba so well. The sonata-allegro first movement showcases the nimble fingers of the player and includes a cadenza, while the second movement is a hauntingly expressive chaconne. The third and final movement has mixed meter and boasts jocular melodies in a rondo form.
