This 16-minute work is divided into 4 movements. First a short, dark Adagio, begun and ended by the organ alone. Then a longer Allegro in which the strings generally play accompaniment figures, while the organ has more melodic material. The third movement is marked “Lento espressivo, con rubato”, and both organ and strings contribute to this mood. The last movement, Allegro vivace, has the organ playing toccata-like chords in alternating hands, while the strings play simple quarter note figures. This is followed by an organ solo in thick chords. An accelerando leads to a short Presto and a rather whimsical ending. A romantic organ would probably work best, and the writing really implies more than a sting quartet.
