The genesis of the Fourth Symphony possibly goes back to the 1870s when Brahms was studying the Bach Cantata Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich,; whose chaconne theme forms the nucleus of the finale. Around 29 August 1885 Brahms wrote to Hans von Bülow from Mürzzuschlag in Styria: However I have a few entr'acts – which together form what one would usually call a symphony. [...] I am afraid [...], it takes after the climate in this region – the cherries do not ripen here.; Yet we are by no means speaking of sour; cherries here. The work is today a part of the canon of classical-romantic symphonies. Our handy and inexpensive priced study edition is based on the musical text in the Johannes Brahms Complete Edition (HN 6015).
