I apologize for switching orchestras, but the original had parts missing so we had to go to this edition of the symphony.

Musical highlights courtesy of the Naxos website.

0. The very opening chords unmistakably herald the arrival of something special. 00:01:06

41. The role of instrumentation in setting the scene… 00:01:10

42. … and in enhancing the quality of one of the most famous tunes in symphonic history. 00:01:29

43. The cor anglais is joined by the clarinet, creating a fascinating change in the timbre. 00:01:08

44. For the closing part of the tune, there is another new sonority: cor anglais plus bassoon. 00:00:24

45. The closing bar is repeated by clarinets and bassoons, the horn adding a new touch 00:00:28

46. Back to the start to hear the whole of the story so far, this time without commentary 00:02:24

47. A change of scoring: the slow opening chords return, this time played by the winds alone. 00:01:14

48. The changes in scoring are just beginning. 00:02:35

49. The flutes and oboes introduce a new tune, over hushed tremolo strings. 00:01:05

50. A memorable combination of continuous, asymmetrical melody with steady, march – like counterpoint. 00:01:28

51. Back in that woodland glade, the light and shadows have changed, revealing new shapes and patterns. 00:01:33

52. The next section is new and forward – looking, yet also a kind of dream – recollection of a past scene. 00:01:30

53. An abrupt change of mood, much discussion and embellishment, and a hushed note of expectancy 00:02:01

54. Subjectivity and expertise; Sourek and Tovey disagree; onwards, into the final section 00:05:14

55. Cue to whole movement 00:00:10

56. Second movement (complete) 00:12:00
