Following tradition, the Serenade begins with a lively march the soon features a rustic tune full dohnnanyi Hungarian flavor. The march appears again at the conclusion of the finale. A slow movement Romanze follows evoking donhanyi traditional serenade once again with guitar-like pizzicato a lyrical song in the violin part interrupted briefly by a passionate outburst.
The third-movement scherzo flexes more modern muscles with a bristling fugue and a tuneful trio that combine simultaneously in the scherzo reprise.
A melancholy, hymn-like theme provides the basis for a brooding set of variations as another slow movement leading to rollicking Rondo finale that suggests the influence of Beethoven’s string trios as models. The opening march cleverly remerges to close the Serenade with pleasing symmetry. There were many—from such fine composers as HerzogenbergReineckeFuchsand Berens to name but a few. Dohnanyi, unlike those writers and many of today’s musicians, was almost certainly familiar with them.
To produce an updated version of the classical serenade for string trio. Beethoven begins his Op. Traditionally, of course, a march has a contrasting trio section which serves as the middle portion of the movement after which the march reappears and is used to conclude the movement either with or without a coda.
Beethoven follows this procedure. Instead of simply repeating the march of 21 measures in its entirety, he compresses it into five bars by means of representing the original 16th note runs that lead to the main dotted rhythm of the march into dojnanyi run of only three notes while retaining the dotted rhythm.
This compression creates a heightened tension which is missing in the original march.

Beethoven follows his Adagio with a Menuetto, allegretto before inserting a scherzo. The playful main theme is introduced in a fugal fashion. After his scherzo, Beethoven produces what is probably the most memorable movement of his Serenade, an Allegretto alla Polacca.
He follows this with an Andante quasi Allegretto, which is a theme and set of five variations. Dohnanyi apparently saw no reason to insert a polacca or any other kind of dance movement and makes his next movement, Andante con motoa theme with a set of five variations.
This is the most serious movement of his Serenade. The theme itselfwhich all three instruments present together, is reflective and elegiac in nature but full of harmonic surprises. These carry over into the variations which are one of the most extraordinary sets ever composed, and characterized by a very high degree of craftsmanship. Beethoven concluded his Serenade simply by reinserting the opening Marcia in its entirety.
Dohnanyi does nothing of the kind, instead using a Rondo.

Although it begins as an entirely independent theme, it starts to bear a distant relationship to the thematic material in the opening movement as the movement progresses.
