The three romances are marked in German:
  • Nicht schnell (not fast)
  • Einfach, innig (simple, heartfelt)
  • Nicht schnell
The three romances as a whole have been described as simple, relatively easy to play, and not virtuosic. However, they also require a good amount of breath control. All three romances are in "song form", or A-B-A. The work's melodies have been described as similar to each other.

The first romance consists of a piano introductory phrase followed by the main theme played by the oboe. The piano has a layered accompaniment. After a faster-paced central section, the movement ends softly after returning to the main theme. The romance as a whole has been described as "tranquil." The second romance, which is in A Major, is mostly a traditional duet between the two instruments with a tense B section that changes tempo twice. Described as "the most rugged and colorful-sounding [romance]" and reminiscent of Brahms, the final romance is the liveliest of the set. There are many mood changes throughout the piece, with the A section being excited and the B section being reserved.
