Semplice is a quiet meditation, with an energetic middle section. A "cantabile" melody is presented at the outset. Filigree abounds as the work builds to a fast, contrasting section. The return of the original material combines the melody with the filigree as counterpoint. The title "Semplice" was selected since the work begins and ends in the "simple" key of C Major.
