Brahms: Symphony No. 4 in E minor Op. 98
Urtext based on the new Complete Edition (Henle) - ed. by Robert Pascall
Authentic editions of four repertory milestones
All four Brahms symphonies recently became available in the Complete Edition published by the G. Henle Verlag. Shortly afterwards, Breitkopf transformed these milestones of the symphonic repertoire into new Urtext performance material. The joint project “Brahms Symphonies” thus comes to a successful close with the publication of score and orchestral parts of the Fourth Symphony.
The many years of in-depth research have uncovered several new aspects concerning performance and interpretation, especially regarding the Fourth. Moreover, it was also high time to examine the generally very reliable “old” Brahms Urtext of the Complete Edition of 1926/27. The result is an authoritative musical text that is free of transmission errors and unauthorized additions.
