Piano: Wilhelm Backhaus
BRAHMS: Symphony No. 4, op. 98 in E minor
Recorded Live in Stuttgart on 15.III.1962 (Aus dem Archiv des SDR)

Keilberth was a conductor of the Old School and he refused all exhibition and show. The sound he produced under his baton was brilliant but never storming or thundering and he didn’t let himself go to exaggerating details. He worked with several German radio orchestras, particularly with that of Stuttgart, where the present two recordings come from.

One of the essential traits in Mahlerĺs creation is the fact that his works consist only of Lieder and symphonies. This apparently fortuitous fact is of capital importance: in fact it is the vivifying source of the Lied that nourished in him the symphonic flow and conditioned its evolution, at least in the first four symphonies.
The present three recordings come from German archives (Keilberth in Dresden, Schmidt-Isserstedt in Hamburg and Walter in Frankfurt).
