Bruckner: Symphony No. 3 in D minor ‘Wagner Symphony'

Bruckner: Symphony No. 3 in D minor ‘Wagner Symphony'

first version 1873


“Since he first recorded the symphony in 1995, Sir Roger has modified his tempo in the first movement. His brisk though no longer overquick tempo works superbly with and through the spare, pellucid, finely honed texturing he draws from the Stuttgart orchestra, an ensemble which under his guidance has brought the art of playing modern instruments in old ways to a new pitch of excellence. There are wind and string sonorities here such as you would expect to hear in music of the Baroque period, something that suits early Bruckner especially well.
The vibrato-free Stuttgart strings play with a purity and simplicity that merits the epithet Cistercian. There are spellbinding moments of quiet at the start and finish of the first movement development and throughout the slow movement (a requiem, in part, for Bruckner's lately deceased mother). The all-in-one Scherzo and Trio is also betwitchingly done, fiery but with grace and charm to spare.
One thing Sir Roger has not modified is his quick-fire treatment of the finale's second theme: the counterpointing of polka and chorale inspired by Bruckner's experience of hearing dance music issuing from a house while nearby a revered colleague lay in his coffin. Karl Böhm in his wonderfully idiomatic VPO recording of the 1889 version takes this at a leisurely 52 bars per minute, the usual pace for a Polka française (as opposed to Schnell-Polka) in Viennese ballrooms at the time. That reservation aside, this is a touching and exhilarating new account of the Third.”

Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 in Eb Major 'Romantic'

Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 in Eb Major 'Romantic'

First Version 1874


Radio Symphony Orchestra Suttgart, Roger Norrington

This recording of Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony uses the composer’s 1874 version as its basis. While in preparation for his performance, Norrington had access to many materials not previously available and this is believed to be the first true performance to represent the composer’s original intentions.

“The orchestral playing is dynamic and bracing. Had Wagner’s Siegfried been blessed with a brain, his journey might have sounded like this.” The Independent on Sunday, 22nd February 2009

Bruckner: Symphony No. 7 in E Major

Bruckner: Symphony No. 7 in E Major

(modified 1885 version, ed. A Gutmann)


Hindemith was an all-round musician, composer, educator, violinist, violist, as well as having mastered all the instruments of the orchestra to a more or less professional level of proficiency, all of which was more than adequate to prepare him as an orchestral conductor as well. Hindemith‘s debut as a conductor came at the age of 21, but only after the Second World War he devoted himself intensively to conducting, attracting invitations from the most famous orchestras. Hindemith’s conducting style was strongly influenced by Wilhelm Furtwängler; he placed the highest value on continuing a living tradition of interpretation. The current album features Hindemith‘s 1958 recording of Bruckner, and as is apparent in this performance, the mature master locates Bruckner’s achievements as a high point on the between Bach and his own work.
