A little tidbit about Symphony Music...
What is a symphony? With its origins dating back to the early 1700s, symphony is derived from opera openings. A symphony is compiled of multiple compositions and is typically created for an orchestra. Classical symphonies include four compositions known as "movements."
Initially, an instrumental symphonic movement begins in sonata form (composition foundation); it then moves on to the second, third and onto the 4th. While there are variations in a symphony's overall structure, tempos are often begun fast, slow, and work back up to fast again.
Famed symphony composer, Ludwig van Beethoven, is known to have laid the foundation for future symphony writers across the globe. Today, his unique sounds are still employed through symphony orchestras who perform beautiful arrays of instrumental music to symphony lovers worldwide.
