4 Scherzo I - BEAUJOLAIS

Tonal centre D major (Moulin a Vent, Brouilly, Juli?nas, Ch?nas, Morgon, St Amour, Fleurie, Chiroubles) Overwhelmingly quaffable, and in large quantities, the wines of Beaujolais made from the Gamay grape provide the only drunken movement, which captures something of the qualities of a Bacchic orgy. A brief lull in the proceedings introduces the Pinot Chardonnay theme, the grape from which a little white Beaujolais is made. The movement leads straight into :-

5 Adagio - BURGUNDY

Tonal centre D flat major (Roman?e Conti, Chambertin, La T?che, Richebourg, Musigny, Ech?zeaux, Corton, the incomparable Montrachet, Meursault Genevri?res, and Corton Charlemagne) The heart of the symphony. The great red and white Burgundies have an incomparable richness which is almost decadent. They have been described as ?mingled velvet and satin?, and of making ?a peacock’s tail? in the mouth. The Pinot Noir (red wines) and the Pinot Chardonnay (whites) appear in alternation gradually increasing in richness of harmony and figuration, and culminating in a musical ?peacock’s tail?. The two themes are closely related both rhythmically and melodically. As in the Bordeaux movement the music ends wistfully, but with a deep inner satisfaction.
