The Third Symphony by Alfred Schnittke was his fourth composition in the symphonic form, completed in 1981. Like its predecessor, it is in four movements: an opening Moderato, followed by an Allegro, a long movement marked Allegro pesante, with the briefer finale marked Adagio. At around 50 minutes, it is Schnittke's third longest symphony, after the First and Second symphonies.
Alfred Schnittke's polystylism was part of the wave of post-modernism that swept through music in the last quarter of the 20th century, and his Symphony No. 3 is one of the most salient examples of this practice. The symphony is cast in the traditional four movements, though the outer movements are marked with slower tempos than the inner movements, so the conventional symphonic framework appears to have been turned inside-out.
