Symphony No. 27 in G major
The opening Allegro molto of this symphony begins with a striking 'long-note' theme rising through the tonic triad; later in the dominant, it is varied in imitative piano texture. Although a passage in downward tremolo arpeggios resembles the interior fast movement of Symphony No. 18 (in the same key), as a whole the movement has the motivic and textural variety characteristic of opening fast movements. The Andante siciliano is outwardly conventional, but its phrasing is irregular (exposition: 7+5+6 bars) and the development is mainly in the minor mode. The Presto finale is a typical 3/8 wind-up, distinguished in the second group by a series of fast rising scales that vaguely resemble the 'La tempesta' finale of Symphony N0.8, 'Le soir'.
