These four studies are based upon four different intervals. They start with the interval of a fourth and then move to the fifth, the sixth and finally the seventh. The idea of them is that they can be played as individual pieces or as a work in its own right.
The First is in a ternary form and works its way through different interpretations of the forth. The second is in a ritornello form. The third piece is merely a development of the first three bars. The fourth movement returns to a ternary form and finishes with an opposite run from the end of the first movement.
