BRAHMS Symphony No. 4 / Kleiber 4577062
Kleiber's recording from 1980 has stood the test of time particularly well . . . There is a wondrous glow to the Vienna Philharmonic's sound and a sense of pacing to the interpretation that underlines the music's integrity.
The reading of power and elegance: Kleiber always had something fascinating to say about this greatest of works.
His classic 1981 recording with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra has polish and fire in equal measure, displaying that characteristic Kleiber blend of intellectual rigour, passion and perfectionism.
Une interprétation exemplaire de liberté maîtrisée.
. . . [une] brillante version Carlos Kleiber-Vienne.
