OK.  I found it in the other forum.  This one has a slow finale (Larghetto), right?  I'd still like the tempo of the scherzo, if anyone has it available.

The three movement titles are: Allegro non troppo, Scherzo: Allegro, Larghetto.
I find myself having a problem, having downloaded the piece and given it a preliminary hearing.  The Larghetto doesn't seem to end in the nominal tonality of the piece.  It's almost as if there's a finale missing, unless this is a work that uses progressive tonality.  Are you absolutely sure this is all there is of the symphony?

You are right. However, I have heard different performances of this symphony, one of them from a live broadcast, and none had more movements than this. It is true that the Violin Concerto, from the same period, is unambiguously in D Major. However, the Fourth Symphony from two years later, nominally in D minor, also uses some kind of progressive tonality: the whole beginning is tonally very ambiguous. The Third starts in E minor and ends in C flat minor, the relative not of E minor, but of E major. From what I know of his harmonic language, this kind of biased correspondence seems likely enough.
You mean C-sharp minor.  C-flat minor is the enharmonic equivalent of B minor, the relative of D Major, and has no corresponding key signature, since the relative major would be E-double flat Major.

Yes, C-sharp, of course. My mistake  Grin

Would also be interested in this concerto!

About the 3td symphony I had this downloaded from HR (Croatian Radio) a few years ago and found only three movements. It didn't end abruptly so I figure it's complete -AND it corresponds with the one I downloaded from the former board.

I think this might be a case where the composer projected a 4 movement symphony then realized that it said all it needed to say in 3.
