Symphony no.4 in in E flat major 'Romantic'


Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra


Paavo Jarvi


This is the fourth volume of the on-going recording project of Bruckner’s complete Symphonies by Paavo Järvi and Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Bruckner’s Symphony No.4 has a nickname of 'Romantic', and has been one of the most popular symphonies among Bruckner’s entire orchestral works. As so often in Bruckner’s case, the Symphony No.4 metamorphosed over a period of many years and in the end comprised several versions. However, the Fourth Symphony was especially tortuous. Today, the second version of 1878–80 has become the most prevalent in performance, and Paavo Järvi also uses this version, with a few modifications based on the first print.

Recorded live in Alte Oper in Frankfurt and edited from multiple performances, this new recording presents fresh view on Bruckner’s masterpiece by Paavo Järvi.

In 2012/13 Järvi was appointed Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture, for his contribution to music in France.
