1    This introduction to the first movement opens with a fateful, gloomy theme played by clarinets in the low register.

2    This first main theme played by clarinets and bassoons in octaves, is a little livelier than the introduction, but still pretty gloomy.

3    This 2nd main theme played by the strings seems to express a plaintive yearning for something impossible.

4    This 3rd theme of this first movement starts with a forte pizzicato chord played by the string section, then a repetitive passage on the clarinets, folowed by an upward surge on the strings.

5    This syncopated 4th theme played by the violins continues ever more forcefully the sense of longing which dominates this entire 1st movement.
