The piece begins in E minor, but quickly modulates to G major. Its first bars, chromatic in character, are a variant of a simple cycle of fifths.
Below is the cycle of fifths and its variants:
|Cycle of fifths||Variation|
|B (V degree of E minor)||B, first inversion|
|E (V degree of A)||G# diminished, vii degree of A (the G# is not used)|
|A (V degree of D)||C# diminished, vii degree of D|
|D (V degree of G)||F# diminished, vii degree of G (the F# is not used)|
