Two times the fourth: While Beethoven's op. 60 is mostly performed in cycles, Mahler's Fourth Symphony is very present in the concert halls. Classically arranged and compact, it clearly differs from the mighty Third and the expansive Fifth. The same is true of Beethoven's magnificent Fourth Symphony: embedded between the "Eroica" and the "Symphony of Fate", it manages completely without the programmatic impetus of its sisters and suffices itself in the best classical tradition.
