The fiendishly difficult and uncompromising finale in B minor is full of complex rhythms - often involving two different asymmetrical rhythmic patterns set against each other and out of phase. The idea of a final movement that is both fast but sad was partly inspired by the last movement of Chopin�s third sonata. The main theme is used like a rondo theme (recurring) with episodes in between either recalling the hope theme from the first movement or developing other material. Towards the end of the movement there is a sudden return of the first subject from movement I in C minor � first combined simultaneously with the �rondo� theme. Then the music switches back to B minor and builds towards it�s climax, hammering the transition motif and �would be love theme� into submission as arpeggios cross over the right hand up the piano. After the final statement of the �rondo� theme the music subsides and ends despairingly with these arpeggios reaching upwards.
