    Default The most inspired Slow movements

    What do you think are the most inspired orchestral slow movements ever?
    Come to think but of a few:
    Beethoven: 9th symphony 3rd mvmnt
    Elgar: Enigma variations, Nimrod
    Schumann: 2nd symphony 3rd movement
    Schubert: Unfinished 2nd movement
    Bruckner: 7th symphony 2nd movement
    Mahler: 10th Symphony adagio

    Haydn's 99th symphony, 2nd movement.
    At first, I discovered the wonders of classical music through the marvels of its baroque period and especially those from Mr. Handel, which explain my forum nickname. About 10 years ago, my interest leaned over classical period and Herr Haydn's production. The music bus recently drove me to the early 1800s. Where will it end?

    Does the Romance from Wieniawski's second concerto count here? I mean, there's an orchestra there, somewhere...

    Terotero, by inspired slow movements, do you mean where the composer was inspired, or what we the listener find inspiring?

    ChamberNut,
    Good point...but I will ask you does it make any difference?...an inspired work is inspiring it is the magic of art (from heart to heart).

    OK, some orchestral slow movements that I find inspiring:

    Beethoven - Symphony No. 6 Pastoral 2nd mvt

    Bruckner - Symphony No. 4 Romantic, 2nd mvt

    Mahler - Symphony No. 5, 4th mvt. Adagietto

    Mozart - Clarinet Concerto 2nd mvt

    Dear ChamberNut,

    I throw myself on my knees before You Senior Member! *doing worshipping gestures*. Can You ever accept my deepest apologies ;o).
    Must confess, I read all too quickly that list and erroneously saw there was mentioned Symphony No. 4 (while it was the 4th mvmnt). Sorry for that. So tomorrow I'll have to contact my optician to give me a new pair of looking glasses
