1 Allegro Con Brio
In this movement, it introduces and reinforces the main theme through various characters, sometimes foreboding, sometimes triumphant, passing through different sections of the orchestra.
2 Andante Con Moto
This is a more simple and lyrical movement, consisting of two alternating themes in variations. Even so, the fury of the first movement can still be felt through the hammering of the second theme by the trumpets and the drums.
This movement opens gently, with the “fate” theme that started off the symphony, expanding and growing before shifting to a bold and busy climax, and calming down afterward before plunging into the fourth and final movement.
It features the “fate rhythm” in a triumphant march, high in energy, and increasing in tempo and volume before closing the symphony in a jubilant major key.
