Symphony No 8

A symphony can hardly open in a sunnier way: warm, melodic summer winds that sweep forward in a spontaneous dance.

The second movement is said to be a parody of the recently launched metronome that ticks its way forward like a well-oiled clock. In the third movement, you meet an elegant minuet with distinguished dance steps, while the finale is bursting with speed and joy. Beethoven was very pleased with his work, which he lovingly called “my little symphony in F major.”
