The Sonata is in three movements. The first is cadenza-like in nature. The piano and trumpet are in conversation with each other until halfway through the movement when the parts weave together more intricately. This movement then gives way to a full trumpet cadenza. The second movement has a mixture of gentle and bold moments and is mysterious in nature. The third movement is the most light-hearted of the three and has a dance-like character.
