Nielsen & Brahms: Symphony No. 4

Nielsen & Brahms: Symphony No. 4


Brahms:

Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98

recorded 18-19 September 1959

Nielsen:

Symphony No. 4, Op. 29 (FS76) 'The Inextinguishable'

recorded 1-2 September 1959


Sir John Barbirolli was a champion of both Jean Sibelius and Carl Nielsen. He recorded all the Sibelius Symphonies and many of the orchestral works, but this 1959 recording of the Symphony No.4 ‘The Inextinguishable’ is Barbirolli’s only commercial recording of the music of Nielsen.

The symphony expresses ‘the elemental will to life’ and the explosive start to the symphony bears witness to the inextinguishable energy of the natural world. In the astonishingly powerful finale Nielsen places two timpani players at opposite sides of the orchestra, and from here their thundering volleys fly across the sound stage at each other. Barbirolli’s classic recording is a powerful rendition of Nielsen’s greatest symphony. Sir John was also a champion of the music of Brahms.

He recorded the four symphonies with the Vienna Philharmonic and the piano concertos with Daniel Barenboim. This 1959 recording of Symphony No.4 with the Hallé Orchestra was briefly available on CD over ten years ago, so this latest reissue is a welcome reminder of Barbirolli intense performance.

Brahms:

Saint-Saëns:

Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78 'Organ Symphony'

Alexander Gorin (organ)


Brahms' Fourth Symphony, his last, was completed in 1885, twelve years before his death. Perhaps, having reached such perfection in his Fourth Symphony, Brahms was less inclined to write another. In his Third Symphony, Saint-Saëns, himself a highly accomplished organist – hailed by Frans Liszt as the greatest in the world, gives us the first work to place the organ in a prominent role in a symphonic setting.

André Pépin (flute)

Brahms:

Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98

Live recording 1952


Carl Schuricht was awarded a warm welcome in Geneva from Ernest Ansermet when forced into exile in 1944. Brahms was always a central part of Carl Schuricht’s repertoire. The harnessing of the fourth symphony, delivered in 1952 is amazing due to the intensity of its metronomic movements and the fluidity of its reading. Carl Schuricht added Bach’s second suite for orchestra to his repertoire to allow the talents of the orchestra’s solo flutist – André Pépin, to be highlighted.
