The first movement of Brahms' Third Sympony is marked allegro con brio. It is in sonata form and incudes a musical motto, F,Ab, F. It is one of the rare examples in Brahms' where the notes have a deeper significance beyond simply music. In Brahms' youth his motto was F,A, F - Frie Aber Froh (Free but happy). With the inclusion of Ab, perhaps Brahms is hinting that independence can lead to lonliness, especially in later life - He was fifty when he wrote this symphony
