Symphony 2Definition: A stringed instrument formerly in use, somewhat resembling the virginal.
Symphony 3Definition: An elaborate instrumental composition for a full orchestra, consisting

works in freer form, with
programmes to explain their meaning, such as the "symphonic

overtures, etc., and still
earlier, to certain
compositions partly vocal, partly instrumental.
