Marcus Bosch completes his internationally acclaimed Bruckner cycle with the 1st Symphony. In the original version dating from 1868, the inherent character of Bruckner’s first symphonic work can be seen in its true colours, less religious pathos and a greater rhythmic energy and wealth of inventiveness than observed in the later works.
Anton Bruckner: Symphony No. 1 in C minor, WAB 101 (orig. 1866 unrevised Linz version, prep. W. Carragan)
III. Scherzo: Schnell
IV. Finale: Bewegt, feurig
“Marcus Bosch's First with the Aachen Symphony...returns us to the kind of weighty approach already well known from various feted Brucknerians of yore, though without recourse to mannerism....He cues a propulsive Scherzo and his finale is particularly imposing: the quasi-fugal writing from 7'2'' builds up a good head of steam and the closing pages are very exciting.”
“What a wonderful Symphony No. 1 this is...Marcus Bosch and his Aachen forces tap the dynamic of the work with a sure understanding of its power and beauty. Tempos are brisk but sufficiently flexible for the first movement's main march-theme to move purposefully without being rigid...this is distinctive and impressive early twenty-first-century Bruckner to put me on the track of previous releases.”
