Evidence of Britten's exceptional gifts as a Mozart conductor.

Opposition des trilles initiaux de la main droite aux traits de la gauche, alternance des modes majeur et mineur, changements de nuances, d'articulation, de tempos, déluge de doubles croches (Piů Presto): un drame s'embrase en deux minutes, avec un sens dialectique du conflit qui s'éloigne des cadences mozartiennes pour planter le germe de toutes celles ŕ venir.
