In the first long movement (an Allegro moderato) there is no repeat.
Allegro moderato, which is built substantially on the chief theme (solo 'cello).
It ends in a brilliant cadenza, that leads to the theme in moderato time.
A long cadenza leads to the last movement in moderato time and in the key of E.
Most of the time the moderato was interpreted as an allegro, and the andante maestro as a simple moderato.
Opposite in feeling is the descending motive of strings, moderato con anima (9/8).
Dahn interprets 'moderato ordine,' 'not so absolutely as the Roman clergy desires.'
The word "moderato" was written in by the Composer's direction, without any request from the editor.
