    The four Brahms symphonies are the epitome of the classical-romantic symphony. They are never outdone, and that is why it is such a joy to know that they are available in a piano reduction. Originally held by G. Schirmer, the Dover Company got hold of them and now makes...

    them available to pianists everywhere. The Dover edition is true to Brahms' markings and intentions and is meant for the advanced pianist, and yet, even those of a lesser technique can run their fingers through some of the beautiful second movements. This is heartfelt music that I wholeheartedly endorse.
