  • A symphony? A movie? HELP!
  • Symphony
  • (from Gk., ‘a sounding together’; Ger. Sinfonie, Fr.Symphonie, It. Sinfonia, Gk.‐Lat. Symphonia).
  • A term which has had several meanings over the centuries:
  • (3) As the word is now generally used, it means a large‐scale orch. comp. (usually in 4 movements but often in 1, 3, or 5, occasionally in 2), a SONATA for orch., the first movement and others being in sonata‐form. It is reserved by composers for their most weighty and profound orch. thoughts, but of course there are many light‐hearted, witty, and entertaining syms. The movements of the Classical and early Romantic sym. were usually an opening allegro, followed by a slow movement, then a minuet or scherzo, finally another allegro or rondo. Frequently the slow movement is placed 3rd, sometimes last.
