Tune of the Day: Allegro from the New World Symphony

by Antonín Dvořák, arranged for solo flute

The final movement of Dvořák's Symphony No. 9 is marked “Allegro con fuoco”, which literally means “Allegro with fire”, that is, very fast and fiery. This fourth movement starts with a martial main theme in E minor for horns and trumpets. The clarinet counters with a nostalgic sub-theme (measure 67), after which flutes and violins play a closing subject in G major. The development which follows combines music from previous movements with the main theme heard at the beginning.

Thanks to Ben for suggesting this piece!
