IV. Allegro Moderato - P. Tchaikovsky* - The USSR TV & Radio Large Symphony Orchestra* , Conductor V
As the composer explained Conductor V, the programme of the first movement is—"roughly"—that "all life is an unbroken alternation of hard reality with swiftly passing dreams and visions of happiness He went on: "No haven exists Drift upon that sea until it engulfs and submerges you in its depths".
The composer's description of the symphony's opening Conductor V as a metaphor for "Fate" becomes more telling in the context of a letter he wrote Sergei Taneyev.
He wrote Taneyev that the Fourth Symphony was both program music and a reflection of Beethoven 's Fifth Symphony in the central idea of its program. Like Beethoven, Tchaikovsky uses his fanfare as a structural marker. Moreover, because of both the length and unorthodox form of the symphony, he may have felt using such a marker was a musical necessity. As the music solidifies into large, slow syncopated chordsTchaikovsky unleashes the musical equivalent of lightning bolts: two short fortissimo chords, each followed by a long measure of silence.
As the music ebbs away, the woodwinds hint at the main melody, which is properly introduced by the strings at the Moderato con anima. The score at this point is marked "In movimento di Valse", as it is written in 9 8. The melody develops quite rapidly. The motif serves Stuart Dummit - Neologism a separation between each section of the sonata—allegro form.
At around twenty minutes in length in some performances, this is one of the longest symphonic movements by Tchaikovsky. It is also just short of the length of the remaining movements combined. The second movement is introduced by the melancholy melody of the oboe. The music's impassioned climax is a reminder of the grieving phrases that dominated the opening movement.
Strings play pizzicato throughout Conductor V third movement. They are joined by the woodwinds later when an oboe 's long, high A signals the start of the A major Trio section. Later, the brass instruments come in, playing very quietly and staccato. The three groups strings, woodwinds, and brass are the only groups that play; there is no percussion in this movement except for the timpani, as in the previous movement. It ends quietly with pizzicato strings.

The Fourth Symphony is where Tchaikovsky's struggles with Western sonata form came to a head. In some ways he was not alone. The Romantics in general were never natural symphonists because music was to them primarily Conductor V and biographical.
Western musical formas developed primarily by Germanic composers, was analytical and architectural; it simply was not designed to handle the personal emotions the Romantics wished to express.
In his first three symphonies he had striven to stay within strict Western form. The turbulent changes in his personal life, including his marital crisis, now led him to write music so strongly personal and expressive that structural matters could not stay as they had been. Beginning with the Fourth Symphony, the symphony served as a human document—dramatic, autobiographical, concerned not with everyday things but with things psychological.
This was because Tchaikovsky's creative impulses had become unprecedentedly personal, urgent, capable of enormous expressive forcefulness, even violence.
Along with this emotional urgency came an unprecedented flow of melody. Here, Tchaikovsky developed his gift for tunefulness more freely and deployed it more liberally than he had previously. Paradoxically, this great asset also became his greatest enemy in terms of form. A melody is complete on its own terms. Because of this completeness, it stands apart from other themes meant not only to contrast, but more importantly to interact and build upon one another naturally.
This dominance of one melody can ruin the balance and proportion Western classical composers considered the proper beauties of sonata form. Andantino semplice - Prestissimo - Tempo primo. Italian Capriccio, Op.

This is accompanied by a bass IV. Allegro Moderato - P. Tchaikovsky* - The USSR TV & Radio Large Symphony Orchestra* that diatonically descends over an octave and a fifth. The second section develops the head motive from PT1. The shifting meter from 6 8 to 3 4and diminished sonority m.
The third section is a brief allusion to the PT2, interrupted by a fugato based on PT1. Motive X returns strongly and insistently in m. This can be interpreted as an effort to re-establish sonority in D. The re-transition to recapitulation is rather abrupt, yet a clever use of common tone modulation can be observed. The recapitulation of this movement follows the convention of sonata form. The second movement begins with the continuation of the tragic sonority in B minor, as if the movement will be in the minor dominant of the tonic of the symphony.
Instead, a common chord modulation leads to a D major theme first introduced by a solo horn. Theme A1 1st horn : . Theme B clarinet in A : . Compared to the stable A section, the B section exhibits instability in many ways. Moreover, the segmentation of a theme, fugato texture, and rapid shift of hyper meter contributes to the instability of this section. In this movement, the motto theme appears twice: from mm. The third movement is a waltz,  with some unusual elements, for example, hemiola and unbalanced phrase structure at the outset of the movement.
These elements take over the movement in the trio section, which is a scherzo. The scherzo theme initially played by the first violins can be seen as a superimposition of 4 4 over 3 4. Hemiola is used again as a transitional technique mm. The waltz returns, but with the texture from the scherzo. The return of the motto theme in the third movement, preceded by a waltz in a major mode, recalls the opening of the symphony,  but with a hemiola element:.
Introduction — Motto Theme: . The exposition of the last movement begins in E minor, whilst the D major sonority seeks to establish itself.
Unlike the first Your Generation - Various - 1-2-3-4 Punk & New Wave 1976-1979, there is an early statement in D major, as well as in V 7 of Groova Originale - Plan 9 (14) - Cool Breeze major mm. A passage of key oppositions, increasing harmonic rhythm, segmentation, and rapid changes of themes culminates Conductor V m.
The development is very brief, lasting about 60 measures. In the recapitulation, a new melody is superimposed over the texture, but never returns. Following this, the coda succeeds in reemphasizing the tonic, using different themes and many cadences in the tonic.
Some of the themes used here are the motto theme m. Some critics, including Tchaikovsky himself, have considered the ending insincere or even crude.
After the second performance, Tchaikovsky wrote, "I have come to the conclusion that it is a failure". Despite this, the symphony Conductor V gone on to become one of the composer's most popular works.
The second movement, in particular, is considered to be classic Tchaikovsky: well crafted, colorfully orchestrated, and with a memorable melody for solo horn.
