Symphony Nr. 3 in E minor, commonly known as the Grijzestad Symphonie is a musical work composed by Georg Ludvík Telemann in 1858. This is considered his best piece and among the best-known Brunanter classical music pieces.
The overture "Thunder and lightning" is the beginning of the symphony. This 7-minute piece acts as a prelude to the siege.
The Kinderenmars (Children's march) is the most famous piece of the symphony. This is a light tune representing the 15 and 16-year old children who took up arms in the city's defense. This is interrupted by loud and dark "bursts" meant to represent the cannons set against them.
The 5th movement "Grijzestad's liberty" is meant to represent the lifting of the siege. This piece is intertwined with dark scores throughout. This portion is played at city events as the unnoficial anthem.
