Arthur Rubinstein

Conducted ,by Mosco Camer
Schumann said of Beethoven's Fourth Symphony that it ' stands like a slender Greek maiden between two Norse giants '. Indeed, the music is full of grace and charm, and the slow movement is one of Beethoven's most beautiful inspirations, of which Berlioz said : ' Such must be the song of the Archangel Michael as he contemplates the world's uprising to the threshold of the empyrean '.
