Symphony No. 4 in E-flat Major
Ivor Bolton, conductor
The Fourth Symphony in E-flat major with the epithet
“The Romantic” is, alongside the Seventh, probably
the best-loved symphony of Anton Bruckner. It
received its highly successful world premiere in 1881
in Vienna, performed by the Vienna Philharmonic
under Hans Richter.
The Scherzo (the third movement, practically
composed anew for the second version of 1878/80)
with its hunting sequences (horns and trumpets) is in
particularly high favour with audiences.
OehmsClassics presents here a live recording from
April 2008 from the Great Festival Hall in Salzburg.
