Allegro, meter of , in ritornello form. The Italian Concerto and the French Overture are, in many ways, “opposed” works and very different from each other.

Sebastian retains the dramatic contrasts between solo and ensemble developed so skillfully by the Italian masters, and injects the form with his own compositional obsession, counterpoint. The effect is deeply serious and emotionally touching, and reveals Sebastian at his most intimate even in the midst of one of his most extroverted works for solo keyboard.

For the deeply religious Sebastian, his compositions in three parts are often intentional reflections, meditations, or appeals to the Trinity, the three-part nature of the Christian God, and it is this aspect of Sebastian’s personality that comes through in this movement, despite the apparently secular mood of the concerto. Scheibe is the only one known to have used the term. Steven Zohn (quoted above) goes on to summarize Scheibe’s discussion of the hybrid form: …a sonata in concerto style may have three, rather than the usual four movements (presumably in imitation of concertos); one upper voice that is ” worked out more fully than the other” that is, an instrument assuming the role of soloist and accordingly playing contrasting and perhaps virtuosic figurations (“convoluted, running, and varied passages”); and a bass line that is less concise than those in “regular” sonatas. In addition to the two soloists, the concerto is scored for strings (first violin, second violin and viola parts) and basso continuo.
