Write 9 pages with APA style on The Symphony No 1 in C Minor Brahms. The most important structural feature and that is undoubtedly original with Brahms, is the acquisition of a short but striking phrase which introduces the exposition, and for which the phrase basic motive seems most appropriate, since it principals the entire movement, either as a component or as a generating factor. The themes are all based on it, or obtained from it. The subordinate Theme is, for scant measures, similar to the principal one: such a likeness between the chief themes has been frequently done before and is identified as one of the conditions of the early symphonic movement (Frisch and Kevin 219). The first codetta also shows a remarkable likeness to the principal theme. the basic motive is set forth in the uppermost tones, but the principal theme is given to the basses.
This symphony has four main movements marked as. Andante sostenuto (E major), Adagio – Più andante – Allegro non troppo, ma con brio – Più allegro (C minor/C major), Un Poco allegretto e grazioso (A-flat major), and Un Poco sostenuto – Allegro – Meno Allegro (C minor). Un Poco allegretto e grazioso is in the form of traditional ternary (Brahms 232). It has the contrasting trio section and allegretto, which is succeeded by a reprise of coda and Agleretto material. Brahms uses a notable aspect of this motion to show symmetry. The form of the symphony can be referred to as A B A’ B’ C D C’ D’ A’’—Trio—A’’’ B ’’ A’’’’ Coda.
The symphony starts with a lengthy introduction wherein three key elements are heard simultaneously: the rising figure in the strings, the falling figure in the winds, and the low drumming (Wilson 88). This introduction was composed after the remainder of the piece had already been scored. The allegro section of the movement is a huge orchestral sonata, wherein musical ideas are developed, clearly expressed, and restated with changed.
