Brahms Symphony No.4 - Carlos Kleiber / Berliner Philharmoniker

Brahms' final symphony, composed in 1884, was described by one contemporary this way: " It is like a dark well; the longer we look into it, the more brightly the stars shine back." This version is widely regarded as one of the finest modern performances of this magnificent work. It is among my earliest memories of classical music, and brings awe and amazement to me to this day.
