The three sections - Allegro, Andante and Vivace - are directly inspired by Domenico Scarlatti's keyboard sonatas: two sequences from Sonata in B minor K 27; the opening 8-bar harmonic sequence from Sonata in E minor K 81; and an adaptation, influenced by Arabic rhythms, of Sonata in F minor K 555.
