The Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98 by Johannes Brahms is the last of his symphonies. Brahms began working on the piece in Mürzzuschlag, then in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in 1884, just a year after completing his Symphony No. 3. It was premiered on October 25, 1885 in Meiningen, Germany.
The symphony is divided into four movements with the following tempo markings: Allegro non troppo (E minor) Andante moderato (E major) Allegro giocoso (C major) Allegro energico e passionato (E minor)
Among the four symphonies by Brahms this is the only one ending in a minor key. A typical performance lasts about 40 minutes.
