The Berlin Philharmonic's best recordings
Herbert von Karajan conducted recordings of Brahms' epic Symphony No. 4 in 1973 on DVD, in 1977 on CD, and once more in 1988. This 1990 release is the 1988 recording, containing more dynamic contrasts than the previous versions, but the overall vision changes little. (DVD) and 1977 (CD) recordings, the overall vision and execution in 1988 had changed little.
