A world-class orchestra, one of the most significant conductors of our time and a concert hall, where the unmatchable acoustics enjoy a legendary reputation: in this Bruckner recording, all the parameters are just right! The audiophile SACD technology finally guarantees that the musical energy this orchestra unleashes has been preserved unfettered and with total transparency on the silver disc.

Not just since placing sixth in Gramaphone’s much-cited orchestral ranking have Mariss Jansons and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks been regarded as an artistic team that complements one another in their individual qualities and reaches a musical level surpassing many of the most famous top international ensembles. Right from its world première, Bruckner’s Seventh was an instant audience success. Its deeply stirring slow movement was dedicated in Bruckner’s own hand to the “highly blessed, deeply beloved, immortal” Richard Wagner, who died in Venice while Bruckner was working on the symphony.

****

“…some of the deepest insights occur in pastoral or contemplative passages: the woodwind-violins exchanges in the coda of the Adagio, the tender rumination of the Scherzo's central trio, and most of all the symphony's hushed, magical opening.”

Gramophone Magazine

December 2009

“As always with Jansons's Bruckner, the performance is broadly based yet purposeful.”
