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


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'

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

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


Anton Bruckner's Symphony no.4 in E-flat major ('Romantic') is one of the composer's most popular works. Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra offer us a fresh and powerful new interpretation of this great music.

This release is the third in the highly acclaimed 'Pittsburgh Live!' series of multi-channel hybrid SACD releases on the FRESH! series from Reference Recordings.

For more than 116 years, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has been known for its artistic excellence. It has a rich history of the world’s finest conductors and musicians. Past conductors include the legendary names of Reiner, Steinberg, Previn, and Maazel. This tradition was furthered in the autumn of 2008, when celebrated Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck became Music director of the Pittsburgh symphony orchestra.

The PSO is critically acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest orchestras and has completed more than 36 international tours, including 20 european tours, eight trips to the far east, and two to south america. The Pso was the first American orchestra to perform at the Vatican, in January 2004 for the late Pope John Paul II, as part of the Pontiff’s silver Jubilee celebration.

This release and the entire 'Pittsburgh Live!' series are recorded and mastered by the team at Soundmirror, whose outstanding orchestral, solo, opera and chamber recordings have received over 70 Grammy nominations and awards!

“the sleek, sweetly yielding strings of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and its characteristically full-throttle brass section [offer] playing that calls to mind the halcyon days of William Steinberg's directorship…sheer magnificence is never in question.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2015

“With the Pittsburgh Orchestra giving such a penetrating reading under the inspirational Honeck, Bruckner’s music is remarkably well served.” MusicWeb International, March 2015
