This is written in a typical style for third movements of Classical sonatas. Vibrant and fast, this movement requires good finger independence. All of the sixteenth notes should have clarity, and the left hand can help keep a steady pulse. Crisp articulation gives the piece a playful character. Since the opening material returns after a short development, the piece is relatively easy to learn as well as to memorize.
