As far as I know, a composition is supposed to hold a thematical relation between its different movements, but in practise it is often difficult to distinctly perceive it. For example, I can't figure out the relation between the movements of Bach's sonata number one. If I did not know it, I would not be able to tell it from the other sonatas, except for the tonal relation. Or in others words, I would think that any fugue would fit in any sonata as well. Can you give me the hints to get the track?
