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

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


Following the recent release of their recording of Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem, Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker turn their attention to another great 19th-century German work, Anton Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4. The recording, taken in concert, is scheduled for release in May 2007 to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Berliner Philharmoniker, which was founded in May of 1882.

“…there's always a sense of movement, partly carried by well-shaped long phrasing, and helped by clear rhythmic articulation - a good performance can make you aware how complex and unusual the rhythmic warp and weft of this score is.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2007 ****

“There is what I can best describe as a Barbirolli-like quality to Sir Simon Rattle's conducting of the finale of Bruckner's Fourth Symphony. …as Rattle's performance proves, a broad pulse works wonders when realised in playing which is as trenchant, stirring and inwardly alive as this.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2007

“... 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

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

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
