Thank you for explanation David.

Try the following example:

Your problem was that you declared partial bars at the end of each
movement to be "complete" and gave them bar checks and whole-bar rests.

That's not going to fly with LilyPond.  It _is_ actually possible to
make LilyPond treat them like that, but then you have to declare the
length of the bar at its _start_ by using \partial on it.  Here is how
to do that:

The latter version lets you use a "full-bar rest" at its end (but I
think that is a rather bad idea since the reader will have a hard time
figuring out its actual length) and will result in more measures since
then the partial bar at the start of the second movement gets its own
measure number.  I'm not convinced that is a good idea either but then
it's probably a question of what was written in the original.
