For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
This 1st movements starts with an adagio introduction by the bassoons, against sombre chords by the double basses. Theme 1 is a poignant sad tune played by the violas and cellos. Theme 2 is a lovely sweeping melody, one of Tchaikovsky's immortal tunes, played in octaves by the first violins and the cellos. Theme 3 as a brisker tune in which the flute ascends a scale and falls down an arpeggio, imitated by the bassoon. Theme 4 is a reprise of the lyrical flowing tune of theme 2, this time backed by the entire orchestra.
