    Default Which movement best represents you?

    Good evening/morning/afternoon!

    As ever, I am having tremendous difficulty sleeping however hard I try, so I decided to come on here for a few minutes and ask an extremely pointless, but nonetheless harmless question!

    Of the four movements in a typical classical symphony - thinking about stereotypes: sonata - slow - dance - rondo, or something similar - which best represents your character?!

    If this is too much nonsense to be worth you time, feel free to ignore me and blame it on my half-functioning brain

    Second (slow) movement - I'm a pretty low-key person, not many big thrills, understated...

    I am the 4th movement, because I am known for my glorious climaxes.

    Good answers! I voted 4th (given it's a rondo) because I'm repetitive and people are relieved once they hear the end of me I'm surprised we have no minuets out there!

    Expressive understated slow movement to a symphony, like Mozart's 41st, Brahm's 4th etc.

    I bet you're pretty good.

    Personally, I prefer the slow movements of multi-piece works. They appeal to my more sentimental nature!

    1st movement, because I endorse the sexist stereotypes of Sonata-form.

    Definitely fourth movement for me. When I listen to a symphony I often play the fourth movement a second time as an encore.
