The Mighty Brahms 4th

08/16/11 8:00AM

Brahms knew he had something special with his fourth (and final) symphony. After its premiere in 1885 he took the work on a 14-city European tour! The mighty work makes a stop on VPR Classical this morning, in a performance with Carlos Kleiber and the Vienna Symphony.
