Bruckner:

Symphony No. 4 in Eb Major 'Romantic'


Even when Dresden lay in ruins after the Second World War, Bruckner was performed. Between 1945 and 1950, the young GMD Joseph Keilberth conducted what may have been the first complete cycle of all “original” Bruckner symphonies. 1946 brought the first performance of the Third Symphony in its original version: late in the day, the Staatskapelle gained the status of a Bruckner premiere orchestra (illustrated by the 2008 recording of this version with Yannick Nézet-Séguin: Edition Staatskapelle Dresden, Volume 39). The Bruckner tradition is alive today within the Staatskapelle Dresden. It is documented in recent times by the now legendary complete recording of Bruckner’s symphonies under Eugen Jochum between 1975 and 1980, concerts and recordings under Giuseppe Sinopoli and Bernard Haitink and the current Bruckner cycle under Principal Conductor Christian Thielemann.

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

1881 version, ed. R. Haas


Recorded live at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, 23 May 2015

After the release of the Bruckner Symphonies Nos. 5, 8 and 9 with Christian Thielemann and the Staatskapelle Dresden, the Bruckner cycle is continued with Symphony No. 4, “Romantic”, one of Bruckner’s most popular work. It is played here in the presumed original version recovered by Robert Haas, which differs considerably from the first published score, accepted by Bruckner as a stopgap only so that the work could easily be performed. The press cheered the performance: “Tone paintings of the finest quality.” Picture format: NTSC 16:9

Sound format: PCM Stereo / DTS 5.0

Region code: 0 (worldwide)

Booklet notes: English, German, French

Running time: 75 mins

No. of DVDs: 1 (DVD 9)

“Thielemann keeps a firm grip on dynamic levels – ppp really means ppp – and the hushed playing is exquisitely rendered. The depth of sonority of horns, trombones and pizzicato double basses at 32’26” (just before fig M) is just one of the many outstanding moments, and the Scherzo’s brief Trio, delicately shaded and imbued with pastoral warmth, is similarly memorable” Gramophone Magazine, February 2017

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
