23rd April 2010
“Instead of monumentalising Bruckner’s sculpted shapes, Janowski and the orchestra give them a rhythmic urgency and transparency. At those rare moments when Bruckner does relent, Janowski relaxes the tempo just enough to let it speak.”
“...this is a far tighter and richer orchestra than it used to be...the strings are capable of an opulent and balanced sonority; the woodwinds are pungent and well-focused (listen to their playful exchanges in the trio of the third movement); the brass have a burnished glow.”
