On a deeper level, the movements can also be seen as programmatic:
1st movement: Dance describes the mountain nymph Echo with her somewhat dance-like nature; the underlying rhythm here is characterised by the 11/8 time signature
2nd movement: Echo and Narcissus describes the nymph’s incandescent love, wooing and subsequent melancholy and is harmonically and melodically somewhat more profound (constructed on an eight-note modus and an eight-note motif series). A ritornello of a similar nature to J. S. Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor displays the affinity of the entire composition to the joyful music-making of the Baroque.
