From the Royal Albert Hall , London
Except in some of Beethoven's symphonies nowhere will you find such concentrated thought and treatment as in the four movements of Brahms's C minor Symphony. The first movement is full of interest drama ; the second, poignant contemplation ; the third, nervous restlessness ; the fourth opens dramatically but ends in a mood of supreme triumph. The last movement is based, surely, on one of the greatest melodies of all time.
