Analysis: The Titus 2 theme is harmonized with seventh chords for the first time here but appears in short fragments of three chords only; the Titus motif is presented in various transformations: with an inverted opening leap in m. 3, in fragmented form in m. 4, in retrograde in m. 4-5, and with rhythmic augmentation in m. 5-6
