Octet in F
Adagio—Allegro—Andante un poco mosso —Scherzo ; Allegro vivace ; Andante with Variations ; Menuetto ; Allegretto-An. danto molto-Allegro
THE Octet has six movements ; the first begins
-L with a slow introduction in which a little figure can be heard which is afterwards prominent in the main, quick body of the movement. The opening of the latter gives out the principal tune at once. The clarinet begins the second movement, an easy-moving piece full of Schubert's melodious charm. Soon after the opening the first violin joins with the clarinet in a duet which the others accompany. The third movement is a scherzo whose merry rhythm runs through the whole of the first section. The middle section, ' Trio,' as it is called, is a quieter, smoother melody, and the merry opening returns. The theme of the fourth movement is like one of Schubert's song melodies, it is followed by seven variations of the tune. The fifth movement is in the same shape as the third, two sections of which first and third are the same, with a contrast between them. It is a lighthearted Minuet. Like the first movement, the last has a slow introduction, and the main quick part of the movement has something of the character of a march.
