The Allegretto Grazioso is the third movement of Antonin Dvorak's Symphony No. 8, composed in 1889 and premiered in 1890. The opening in G minor is a melancholy waltz in triple meter, reminiscent of the slow movement of the third symphony of Johannes Brahms. The coda, in G major, closes out the movement on a festive note, akin to a Bohemian dance.
