Symphony No. 4, in E minor Brahms
1 Allegro non troppo. 2 Andante moderato. 3 Allegro giocoso. 4 Allegro energico e passionate
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 thought 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.
