Symphony No 77 in B flat major
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The most notable thing about Symphony No 77 is its finale, one of the first examples of a sonata-rondo form, literally a combination of sonata form with the rondo in which the C section of the A–B–A–C–A comprises a development of earlier material rather than a new theme. The preceding movements are no less distinctive: an opening Vivace with, this time, a true second subject; a leisurely, often restrained Andante sostenuto with the strings muted; and a Minuet of a vigour that looks forward to the true scherzo.
