Karajan conducts Brahms’s Symphonies Nos. 1–4

Brahms’s symphonies were among the cornerstones of Herbert von Karajan’s repertoire – and his compositions have also played a more important role in the work of the Berliner Philharmoniker than almost any other composer’s. So when it came to this music, the partnership between orchestra and conductor was a particularly happy one, as these 1973 recordings of all four Brahms symphonies show: performances full of passion and dark fire.
