This short chromatic piano piece was composed by Bela Bartok in binary form. The first of the three structural divisions begins softly, andante, in six-eight time. The right and left hands alternate with each other, repeating their motives throughout the first section. The first sign of structural phenomena shows at the beginning of the Risoluto section. There is a meter change to four-four, tempo increase, and the volume swells to forte. Another structural phenomena is a register change, as both hands move up an octave at the beginning, then drops down at the end with a sforzando. This structural division also shows the piano players hands in unison with each other for part of the Risoluto, instead of alternating motives. The final Andante section returns to triple meter, and a slower tempo. The base is sustained for the first six measures while the treble clef demostrates complex contrapuntal motives similar to those played in the first structual division. The tempo slows yet again four measures from the end, accompanied by a decrescendo to pianissamo, while both hands play a sustained chord held until the sound dies.
