It was Brahms's Second Symphony. He compared the first and third movements of the Brahms symphony to the counterpart movements of Dvorak's Sixth Symphony.

Why is the playlist not displayed? I recognize Brahms but in no place is the name of the piece given! I followed the link to the WFMT website and it gave the Symphony Part III name but no playlist content.
