In hot pursuit of a B section

In a pocket of this three-ring binder, I find a slip of non-MS. paper with a few verbal notes about N° 4 on one side, and a string of pitches and rhythmic values which must refer to the Viola Sonata on the reverse.

Of course, I took it for a sign, and I used those pitches (and their transposed inversion) in the sketch I made of the B section this afternoon.

Now, having sunbathed and cavorted in the surf, I may well expand upon this.
