First movement
Second Movement
Third movement
fourth movement
-Something i could definitely listen too
-Energetic but soothing
the 1 st movement: allegro ma non troppo (fast, but not to much) , un poco maestoso, begins piano, in a mysterious manner. Then the vigorous first theme arrives, in d minor, tutti (together) and fortissimo (very loud). The second theme is represented by three different motives.
the 2 nd movement: molto vivace (very lively) (tempo of a given piece) is a fast scherzo (a vigorous, light, or playful composition), significant for the use it makes of the kettledrums.
The 3 rd movement: adagio (slow tempo) molto cantabile (very smooth), in B flat major, comprises two varied and moving themes. Between the variations there is twice an interlude (rest), andante (moderate slow tempo) , another more tender and optimistic theme.
The 4 th movement: Presto (quick tempo). The longest, and requiring the complete orchestra with four vocal soloists and a four voices choir. It lasts for about 30 minutes and includes the Ode to Joy.
-Listening to while im reading a book
-The 4th movement is my favorite
Symphony-an elaborate musical composition for full orchestra, typically in four movements, at least one of which is traditionally in sonata form.
Henriette Sontag
