Double Concerto; Symphony No. Robert Casadesus in Concert. Bruno Walter Conducts Brahms: Assuming the symphony is performed uncut, this also includes a full repeat of the exposition. In contrast to the exposition, the development is stormy at times and moves through multiple key centres. Only the first subject and central motto theme are used in the development. After a long dominant pedal, the music slowly transitions to the recapitulation in E major, in which only the second subject is recapitulated, but is heavily expanded on compared to the exposition.
This device of omitting the first subject from the recapitulation was also used by Tchaikovsky in his second , fourth and sixth symphonies. A coda in E minor concludes the movement fortissimo. This movement really only resembles a scherzo insofar as it relates to the early- to mid-Romantic tradition of symphonic movements, and its use of a typical scherzo form ABACABA. The movement, in A minor, opens with a lively ostinato in the upper strings.
As a fixture in large-scale works by Rachmaninoff, the Dies Irae plainchant is referenced, here in the opening bars by the horns. The B section is a lyrical cantabile melody in C major. The central trio section notably begins with a sudden, tutti , fortissimo chord, and is an example of Rachmaninoff's mastery of counterpoint and fugal writing, thanks to his studies with Taneyev, to whom this symphony is dedicated.
At the conclusion of the movement, the Dies Irae is again stated, this time by a brass choir.

The movement ends pianississimo ppp. This movement is in a broad three-part form, and is often remembered for its opening theme, which is played by the first violins and restated both as a melody and as an accompanying figure later on in the movement. This opening theme, however, is really an introduction to the main melody of the movement, which is presented by a lengthy clarinet solo, and is a typical Rachmaninoff creation, circling around single notes and accompanied by rich harmony.
The second part of the movement is based on the initial motto theme of the symphony, and in many ways is a direct complement to the introduction of the first movement, leading to an impassioned climax in C major. After a transition back to the opening theme, the central melody of the movement is restated, this time played by the first violins, while fragments of the opening theme are heard in the accompaniment.
The movement concludes in a tranquil fashion, dying away slowly in the strings. The final movement is set in sonata form. The lively, fanfare-like first theme is played by the entire orchestra, leading into a march-like interlude played by woodwind. After the return of the first theme, the first subject is concluded, and transitions directly into a massive, broad melody played by strings.
After dying down to pianissimo , the third movement is briefly recalled. The development section m. Following various thematic explorations and counterpoint, the music eventually breaks into a bar passage mm.

This eventually leads to a near-doubling of the development's length, in like proportion to the exposition. The first rehearsal of the symphony was terrible, but the hornist did, in fact, come in on cue. I was standing next to Beethoven and, believing that he had made a wrong entrance, I said, "That damned hornist! It sounds frightfully wrong.
Beethoven did not forgive me for a long time.
The recapitulation section features a sudden excursion to F major early on : The movement concludes in a long coda that reintroduces the new theme first presented in the development section. The second movement is a funeral march in the ternary form A—B—A that is typical of 18th-century funeral marches, : The movement is between 14 and 18 minutes long. The opening A-section in C minor begins with the march theme in the strings, then in the winds.
A second theme m. At this point, the traditional "bounds of ceremonial propriety" would normally indicate a da capo return to the A theme. The first theme reappears briefly in G minor in the strings m. The third movement is a lively scherzo with trio in rapid 3 4 time.
It is between 5 and 6 minutes long. Later, a downward arpeggio motif with sforzandos on the second beat is played twice in unison, first by the strings mm. This is followed by a syncopated motif characterized by descending fourths m. The trio section features three horns, the first time this had appeared in the symphonic tradition. The fourth movement is a set of ten variations on a theme. It lasts between 10 and 14 minutes.
After a short introduction on the tutti, the quiet theme, in E-flat major, first appears and then is subjected to a series of ten variations:. The first variation repeats the theme in "arco" while a new accompaniment is introduced. Where a new melody is introduced while the theme is still played on the bass. A brief transitional passage leads to:. In C minor , a fugue that starts quietly on the strings as it builds up to a climax.
The playful fifth variation, in D major , directly leads to:. A stormy variation in G minor. Another transitional passage brings the piece into:. Another fugue, this time in the tonic instead of the submediant , again building up to a climax; at the orchestra pauses on the dominant of the home key, and the theme is further developed in:.
The melodies of this variation are made of syncopated 16th and 8th notes. The final variation, which is when the "full image" of The Eroica is heard. A triumphant and heroic plunges are constantly heard on the tutti, as the melody from the third variation, now victorious and energized, are heard on the brass. The symphony ends with a coda, which takes image on all previous sections and variations of the movement.
At the end of the coda, there is a surprise, which is when the dynamic changes from pp to ff all of a sudden as the tempo abruptly changes to presto.
A flurry of sforzandos appear, and the finale ends with three large E-flat major chords on the tutti, marked fff. Beethoven began composing the third symphony soon after Symphony No. The first public performance of Symphony No. There is significant evidence that the Eroica , perhaps unlike Beethoven's other symphonies, was constructed back-to-front.
