These two adjacent arias for the same character also coordinate with a crucial moment in the drama: Silvia has resolved her conflicting feelings. Of the two arias for Silvia in the second part, No. 19 is a big three-part piece deriving from the da capo tradition: the A section is a closed binary structure; B changes metre, tempo and mode; and the return is like a written-out dal segno as it quickly moves from E minor to G major for the return of the last part of A.
