Symphony No.8 in G Op 88 2nd movement Dvořák Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Dvorak wrote this jolly and cheerful symphony in 1889. It used to be numbered 4, but in newer catalogues it has been re-assigned as Symphony No 8.

This slow movement is an adagio, whose moods alternate between pensive in C minor, and joyous when it shifts into C major. The movement opens with a sort of dirge based on a short motif on the strings, followed by dark clarinets playing in close harmony, followed then by a little outburst from the flutes. Around bar 24 there is a great contrast, when the joyous and lyrical C major 2nd theme is played by oboes and flutes against lilting descending violin passages and punctuated by pizzicato chords on the lower strings and horns.
