    I never heard it as forced rejoicing.  I always heard it more as a wickedly fast rondo. It's interesting to see how fast they can push the string section.  I think maybe it depends on how "monumental" you think the symphony is trying to be at the time you listen to it.  Lowered expectations make it a lot more fun.
