This symphony runs to five movements rather than the conventional four, including a (funeral) march and a waltz. It is a classic of 'programme music' in that it tells and illustrates a story, thus in some ways anticipating the use of orchestral film scores in a later age. The instrumental effects are sumptuous and remarkable, in keeping with their composer who wrote an authoritative treatise on such techniques. Who was the composer, and what is the work?
Anton Dvorak : 'New World' Symphony
Mendelssohn : Das Lied von der Erde ('Song of the Earth')
Hector Berlioz : Symphonie Fantastique
Vaughan Williams : Sinfonia Antarctica
