Brahms’s Fourth Symphony is the most spiritual of his orchestral scores – the supreme achievement of his quest to wed discipline and emotion. This piece ends the orchestra's cycle of the composers symphonies and is joined by the only one of Brahms’s concertos that shares that autumnal poise, those golden-browns of resignation and the symphonic breadth that communicates everything Brahms held dear. Leonidas Kavakos joins the orchestra for this poignant conclusion to its four-concert portrait of the most exquisite craftsman ever to write for orchestra. 

Listen to Riccardo Chailly discuss the music of Brahms here.
