Symphony No.6 in F, Op 68 (Pastoral) 4th movement Beethoven Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Beethoven wrote his 'Pastoral' symphony in 1808. In a major break from the classical tradition, he supplied a subtitle in the score for each of the 5 movements. This makes it an example of 'programme music', though it expresses moods and feelings more than attempted sound effects. It shows Beethoven at the transition between the classical and the romantic styles. Beethoven described the 4th movement as 'Thunderstorm.' Its tempo is marked 'allegro '.

1    There's a storm brewing! Pianissimo 2nd violins start this tune against a backdrop of cellos and basses playing threatening semi-quaver tremoloes deep down.

2    The 1st violins start this fragmentary theme, which conveys a sense of alarm with its emphasis on diminished 5ths.

3    By the time this bold diatonic tune in F minor appears, the storm has reached its climax, and the orchestral tutti are all in full fortissimo.
