Brahms’ fourth and last Symphony in E minor was written in 1885. The character of the minor key pervades the work, with an overwhelming sense of reflection on the seriousness of life and fate, and how, despite transitory strength and enthusiasm, bitter resignation is the lot of mankind. It is a ballad about heroes and their heroic deeds.
Beethoven’s C minor Piano Concerto displays masterly strength and grandeur. Energy from the soloist is the driving force combined with expressive power, while the slow movement, a tender dream, is filled with melodic writing.
