Symphony No. 22 (Myaskovsky)
- Lento. Allegro non troppo in B minor
- Andante con duolo in B♭ minor
- Allegro energico, ma non troppo vivo in B minor
The first section begins with a slow introduction which acts as a section-connecting and recurring motive, in B minor but with a tendency to slip to a G major chord. When this introductory material is last heard, near the end of the symphony, the top G rises to a G♯ several times.
The symphony was premiered in Tbilisi under Abram Stasevich on 12 January 1942. It was possibly among the first symphonic responses to The Great Patriotic War (World War II), predating Dmitri Shostakovich's Leningrad Symphony.
