Hey, there are "only" 4*3*2*1=24 options in this! Why don't you add a poll? It would make it easier to see which options are most popular. And it would make the thread even more meaningful (if that is even possible). ;D

Here, I'll write them down for you:

1234
1243
1324
1342
1423
1432
2134
2143
2314
2341
2413
2431
3124
3142
3214
3241
3412
3421
4123
4132
4213
4231
4312
4321

Weeeeee! That was fun!

Four -- I like very much, especially the first and fourth movements.
Three -- comes second, but I agree with someone about the boring slow movement. The third movement is great, however.
Two -- a long way behind.
One -- in fifty years of listening, I  have never taken to this piece. I just find it rather noisy and have given up trying to appreciate it.

Ach! You're both mad.  That Andante is some of the most exquisite music ever to come out of Germany!

I will probably place the Fourth at the top forever.

Me too.

In my case it was Karajan '64.

My favorite Brahms symphony is generally the one I've heard most recently.

At the moment, that would be no. 2.

yeah, this was hard. I found I could only add one option at a time, and I had to save after each one. But they're all there now. And the data will be absolutely meaningless, as they are in all good polls. I have a feeling if we graph the results, it will be a flat line.   ;)
