III. Andante con moto
This movement starts with a fine broad melody, then it turns into bit of a military affair, ending with a simple contented coda.
it always seemed to me a welcome diversion, like a walk, from the somber to playfullness of the earlier movements. This time in Brahms' life, even more so than most in their late 20, was filled with angst. His close friend Robert Schumann just died, he had that strange relationship with the widow - causing much thought and wonder - not to mention his failed courting of Agathe von Siebold. All this along with the excitement of conducting a women's choir at the same time!
