Regarding "Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions. Many of them were good 
generic: component, section, division, piece, work-section. However, I
think it's quite important to have a more specific term here to avoid
overlap with other concepts and to make the intended meaning clear."

But of course any term covering that number of diverse kinds of elements 
is going to be generic.
For all sorts of reasons, I don't think "Satz" works.  What about "unit"? 
Movements, discrete sections,
acts, and numbers are all types of unit.
