The opening of the movement begins in a way that seemingly contradicts the II Andante Più Tosto Allegretto - Haydn* con spirito marking. Violin II, viola, and cello sustain a tonic chord while the first violin plays the melody the "sunrise" motif on top. In measure 7, the same instruments sustain a dominant seventh chord while the first violin again plays a rising solo on top.
In measure 22, all instruments reach forteand allegro con spirito character is apparent through the sixteenth-note movement and lively staccato eighth notes trading off between the parts.
In measure 37, the opening sunrise theme returns, this time with the solo in the cello and the sustained chords in the violins and viola.

In measure 60, all instruments drop to piano for a six-measure staccato eighth-note section before jumping to an all sixteenth-note fortissimo in measure 66 to finish off the exposition.

In measure 96, the violins play staccato eighth notes followed by eighth-note rests, while the viola and cello fill in the violins' eighth note rests with their own eighth notes. This sets up a pattern for the rest of the development section, in which one instrument, mainly the 1st violin in measuresfills in an eighth rest with a lone eighth-note, thus giving each measure a steady eighth-note pulse.
Throughout this section, the dynamic gradually drops from forte to pianissimo by means of a poco a poco decrescendo. In measurethe beginning of the recapitulation begins just as the beginning of the exposition, with the 2nd violin, viola, and cello sustaining a tonic chord while the 1st violin plays the sunrise motif above it.
