Cpo’s unique Bruckner cycle under Mario Venzago continues with the Second Symphony performed by the Northern Sinfonia. As in the case with Symphonies Nos. 0 & 1 (7776172), Venzago has chosen a top orchestra of relatively small instrumental dimensions: the Northern Sinfonia from Newcastle, one of Europe’s most exciting and innovative orchestras.
Anton Bruckner: Symphony No. 2 in C minor, WAB 102 (1877 version, ed. R. Haas)
I. Allegro: Ziemlich schnell
II. Andante: Feierlich, etwas bewegt
III. Scherzo: Schnell
IV. Finale: Mehr schnell
“a regular box of surprises, some of them quite startling...The principal virtue of the performance is in its agility, leanness and considerable subtlety of expression, the way it challenges the Bruckner cliche (weight, breadth, monumentality) with something utterly new...it's a valuable corrective”
