Often the relationships between gestures
may say more
than the gestures themselves.
The Dialogo is arranged by the appearances of the main subject and its response, which constitute the melodic material for the movement. The first and second pages are spatially oriented, while the last three pages feature horizontal lines read left to right and down the page.
The Capriccio is read from left to right across sixteen pages, first along the horizontal top line until halfway through the piece, after which the notation continues along the bottom line. This layout of the score foremost emphasises the division of the Capriccio into two larger sections.
