Three Musical Movements- Where is the Fourth?

The novel Hadriana In All my Dreams is separated in Three Movements, which could refer to Musical movements.

Premier Mouvement: 

Chapitre premier: Balthazare et les sept reins de Madame Villaret-Joyeuse

Chapitre deuxième: L’étoile qui n’a brillé qu’une fois

Chapitre troisième: Hadriana sur les genous des dieux

Chapitre quatrième: Requiem pour une fée créole (Requiem: also called Requiem Mass, the Mass celebrated for the repose of the souls of the dead)

Deuxième Mouvement: 

Chapitre cinquième: Le mal d’Hadriana

Troisième Mouvement:

Chapitre sixième: Le récit d’Hadriana

On Wikipedia, I found that a classical piece of music has four movements: “It was customary for the first movement in a symphony to be allegro and in sonata form, the second andante or adagio, the third a fast scherzo or a Menuett, and the fourth a lively allegro”.
