The piece is a study for developing stamina, dexterity, and technique – essential skills for any concert pianist. It begins with a piano introduction to the main melody. The first theme follows, consisting of tumultuous cascades of semiquaver-tuplets (sixteenth-note-tuplets) and a leaping figure for the left hand in the relative major, C major, which shortly segues into a repetition of the first theme. It finishes with a short development into a fortissimo coda and ends with one final statement of the theme.
