Despite the fact that Brahms's four symphonies differ from each other both in emotional impulse and in various details of design, they are aesthetically of equal importance and belong to a symphonic style that may be described as romantic, though cast in a classical mould. The Symphony No. 4, in E minor, is as lyrical and romantic in expression as most contemporary music of the time. But whereas so many of Brahms's contemporaries relied a great deal on a resplendent use of orchestral colouring to impress their ideas upon the listener, Brahms with a certain austerity allows the effect of his music to depend on its actual content and not upon its dressing.
Many admirers of Brahms consider the E minor Symphony the greatest of the four, but this is largely a matter of personal taste. Certainly its last movement is one of the greatest achievements in symphonic music-it is in passacaglia form: a set of variations on an eight-bar phrase.
