This release brings the first and most important stage of Simone Young and the Hamburg Philharmonic’s Bruckner cycle to a close. Their aim has been to perform the symphonies of Bruckner in their original form. “…this disc (OC629 Symphony No.4) is undoubtedly a milestone in the appreciation of Bruckner’s most radical symphonic design.” International Record Review
Bruckner: Symphony No. 1 in C minor
III. Scherzo: Schnell
IV. Finale: Bewegt, feurig
Awards Issue 2011
“Here is a Bruckner conductor who understands where the music is going and the contextual significance of detail. Young seems at one with Bruckner's sound world, how the music breathes and how to balance weighty brass without letting them overwhelm the rest of the orchestra...What I like most about this performance...is its mixture of drama and warmth, its sense of journeying through a sizeable, open landscape”
