The Signs as Symphonies

Aries: Shostakovich 5. (its first performance was the success that cemented Shosty’s career, with a half-hour standing ovation. he wrote it while angry at Stalin, of course.)

Taurus: Mahler 2. (the Resurrection Symphony. it’s got epic french horns and epic strings and epic voices and it’s all very epic.)

Gemini: Haydn 94. (the “Surprise Symphony”. my favorite of the theories is that it’s supposed to awaken those who fall asleep by that point in the music.)

Cancer: Beethoven 6. (the “Pastoral Symphony”. my favorite section is “merry gathering of country folk.”)

Leo: Mozart 39. (so many trumpets. the first word people think of is usually something along the lines of “majestic,” or “grand.”)

Virgo: Prokofiev 2. (each movement has a sort of nervousness to it, with anger fading in and out; my favorite part is the 3rd movement.)

Libra: Tchaikovsky 4. (”Fate.” composed for his patron/ pen pal/ best friend, Nadezhda von Meck.)

Scorpio: Liszt 109. (the Dante Symphony, detailing the levels of the Catholic Hell from the Inferno.)

Sagittarius: Haydn 45. (the “Farewell.” Symphony. it’s super happy and dance-y sounding and great for most situations involving food or pets.)

Capricorn: Sibelius 7. (literally the most depressing symphony of all time. only one movement. done that way one purpose, however; absolutely GENIUS.)

Aquarius: Dvorak 9. (”New World Symphony.” Neil Armstrong listened to this on his way to and from the moon.)

Pisces: Paganini “Sonata a violino principale” (not technically a symphony, but i like it a lot and it feels very Pisces-ish.)

now, go listen to whichever one is your sun sign. (note: symphonies are written in sonata form. most of these are in three or four parts.)

Tchaikovsky - Symphony no. 4 in f minor

Yet another fantastic reason to say Tchaikovsky was one of the greatest orchestrators of all time. While there is a program to the movements [reflecting Tchaikovsky’s feelings for his close friend and artistic patron, Nadezhda von Meck], it isn’t necessary to appreciate the towering achievement of the dramatic first movement, the passionate slow movement, the playful scherzo, and the energetic finale. Am I gushing too much? Probably. This happens when I try to describe the classics. Perhaps the music should just speak for itself. I walked, as I usually do, around the city neighborhood, then to the beach, and back again. Despite the titanic bleakness that he conveys at the beginning [and I quote, “roughly"—that "all life is an unbroken alternation of hard reality with swiftly passing dreams and visions of happiness …”. He goes on: “No haven exists … Drift upon that sea until it engulfs and submerges you in its depths”], the second half contains some of the more uplifting orchestral music I know of: the scherzo is a study in pizzicato strings and colorful winds, and the finale is like the Fourth of July. A Beethoven gesture, it seems, to recreate tragedy, projecting upward to triumph.


1. Andante sostenuto — Moderato con anima — Moderato assai, quasi Andante — Allegro vivo

2. Andantino in modo di canzona

3. Scherzo: Pizzicato ostinato - Allegro

4. Finale: Allegro con fuoco
