Brahms Symphony No. 4 (Re-Broadcast)
03.15.2019 - By Sticky Notes: The Classical Music Podcast
Due to a last minute substitution conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra, there was unfortunately no time to write and record Part 2 of our exploration of Mahler's 9th Symphony. Don't worry, we'll be back next week with the 2nd and 3rd movements of Mahler. In the meantime, enjoy a look back at one of my favorite episodes, an exploration of Brahms' final symphony. We talk about Brahms' battle between musical conservatism and progressivism, and the secret messages he might have encoded in the piece.
