Counterplots juxtaposes and superimposes several ideas of contrasting character and tempo.
Wisp is improvisatory-like, developing motives from Counterplots, while foreshadowing the primary motive of Pursuit.
Pursuit is a culmination of the first two movements, taking motives from each and treating them in a quasi perpetuum mobile fashion.
