Italian term or phrase: di un primo tempo
One of two items under an exam for violoncello quartet playing:

"Analisi tematica e formale di un primo tempo dell’op.18 di Beethoven assegnato alla commissione un’ora prima dell’esame."

I am unsure of the sense/nuance here. Obviously I know the literal meaning of each word.
