Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 in Eb Major 'Romantic'


“... the superlative Böhm who has been hiding his light under a bushel in recent years as a Bruckner conductor. This interpretation is really breathtaking in its unhurried majesty, about as broad as can be from start to finish (slow movement, scherzo and all) since Böhm has the rare gift of being able to sustain the broadest tempi convincingly and majesterially.” Gramophone Magazine

With the VPO on top form and Böhm at his most congenial this is a glorious performance of a Bruckner favourite - James Jolly, Gramophone 1000th issue

“Böhm's VPO account of the Fourth Symphony has the unmistakable stamp of greatness. It was made in the Sofiensaal in Vienna with its helpful acoustic; for though you can detect a whisper of tape-hiss if you put your ear against the loudspeaker, in almost every other way the sound is realistic and warm. There's a roundness in the brass tone with plenty of bite and fullness but no unwanted rasp – especially important in this symphony. Böhm's Fourth is at the head of the field irrespective of price. The warmth as well as the mystery of Bruckner are far more compellingly conveyed in Böhm's spacious view than with any other conductor.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 in Eb Major 'Romantic'


This is the fourth volume of the on-going recording project of Bruckner’s complete Symphonies by Paavo Järvi and Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra. Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4 has a nickname of “Romantic”, and has been one of the most popular symphonies among Bruckner’s entire orchestral works. As so often in Bruckner’s case, the Symphony No. 4 metamorphosed over a period of many years and in the end comprised several versions. However, the Fourth Symphony was especially tortuous. Today, the second version of 1878–80 has become the most prevalent in performance, and Paavo Järvi also uses this version, with a few modifications based on the first print. Recorded live in Alte Oper in Frankfurt and edited from multiple performances, this new recording presents fresh view on Bruckner’s masterpiece by Paavo Järvi. Grammy award winning Paavo Järvi is now in his fifth season as Music Director of the Orchestre de Paris and this January conducts the opening concerts of the new Philharmonie de Paris, where the orchestra will be the main resident ensemble.

“In the CD booklet, Järvi explains that he perceives the symphony as being lighter and sunnier than its companions and seeks to avoid the traditional monumental approach to Bruckner interpretation. The result involves slightly faster tempi than usual in the first two movements but also a convincing sense of power and depth.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2015
