It was when examining material used at the first performance of the Third, in the archive of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreundethat Leopold Nowak brought to light an intermediate version of the symphony's slow movement. As compared with the first version, it has lengthened periods but also a number of shortenings and changes in instrumentation; the composer furthermore enriched the Wagner quotations with a motif reminiscent of Tannhauser.
