I have arranged this entire symphony for string quartet, it seems to be very popular as background music as it is easily recognizable. This symphony is cast in the usual four movements; the opening Molto allegro immediately announces something unusual by starting not with characteristic loud "call to attention," but with quietly spoken agitation. The uneasy passion of the main theme leads to conclusions that seem to protest rather than find any consolation. The movement's dominant feeling is urgency: upbeat after upbeat after upbeat occurs.

This arrangement comes with an additional bass part for use with string orchestra.
