I. Andante /Allegro con brio ed appassionato (C Major / C minor)

Structure:

II. Andante cantabile
An Andante with 7 variations on the theme which Beethoven sketched for the second movement of his planned 10th symphony in 1825.

III. Scherzo

Among Beethoven's sketches for a 10th symphony from 1825 there are the opening 24 measures for a Scherzo (titled 'Presto') and the 7 measure theme for a  Trio as a middle part of the movement. This Scherzo theme is one of the most furious and powerful Scherzo themes I know, somewhat a mixture of the Scherzo themes of his fith symphony  and Schummann's first symphony. I made an atttempt to develop these themes to a whole symphonic movement.

IV.  Allegro con spirito

The Finale is the most vivid and jubilent movement I wrote so far. In the development (starting at 4:30) more dark and exotic colours come in:
