Symphony No. 8 in C minor


The Symphony No.8, together with his unfinished Ninth, has been described as the final stage in this life-long process of finding his one true form of artistic expression. It is a symphony, which is said to present nothing fundamentally new, being somewhat a work in which achievements from his earlier endeavours finally comes to fruition. Nowadays this

symphony is being regarded as one of the most important classical orchestral works from the late nineteenth century.

Reissued in combination with the seldom recorded 0th symphony, this makes a very attractive Bruckner set. A vivid recording from the eighties, now finally reissued on Newton Classics.

Bruckner:

Symphony No. 8 in C minor


Rafael Kubelík enriched the repertoire of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks primarily with works by Czech composers and 20th century music. However, during his period as chief conductor of the orchestra, he also fostered the traditional German romantic repertoire with which the ensemble had made a name for itself as far back as its founding years under Eugen Jochum. In May of 1977 Kubelík conducted Bruckner’s Symphony No. 8 in C minor at a concert in Munich’s Herkulessaal, the recording of which is now being released. In a review in Munich’s Süddeutsche Zeitung, the orchestra was rated as equal in rank to such famous Bruckner orchestras as the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras.

Bruckner: Symphony No. 8 in C minor


Giulini's haunting interpretations of Bruckner with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra still linger in the memory. On 11 and 12 February 1984 he conducted his Symphony No.8. According to Klaus Geitel (Berliner Morgenpost on 14 February), Giulini's artistry was characterised by his integrity. “Giulini calmly stands back from the work that he conducts. Not for a single moment does he appear to be important, and even less does he appear selfimportant. All his concentration is focused on the colossal work, seemingly enveloping it… The outcome was a rendering of the Eighth Symphony full of grandeur: melodious and delighting in the details, from the plaintive calls of the oboes and clarinets in the first movement to the radiant, thunderous brass of the Finale. “The dark, mysterious aspects of the symphonic complexes recede, particularly in the first movement. All the lyrical passages display a more positive sound than usual, the solemn radiance of the brass symbolising the victory of the celestial powers over the demons. The Scherzo is imbued with elemental rhythmical vehemence, the Trio contrasts with its heartfelt, songlike melody. The overall impression was that the Adagio was interpreted as a psalm, full of passionate, devotional mysticism and renunciation of the world.” Thus Walter Kaempfer's review on 14 February in Der Tagesspiegel, in which he compared Giulini's interpretation to those of Furtwängler, Eugen Jochum and Karajan. “His warm, pulsating rendering, with all details clearly articulated, was supported by the Philharmonic Orchestra playing at full tilt, with melodious string sound and the solemn pomp of the brass instruments.” From the booklet note by Helge Grünewald.

Bruckner: Symphony No. 8 in C minor

Bruckner: Symphony No. 8 in C minor


As with his Seventh symphony, Bruckner began his Eighth without a commission and without any specific promise that it would be performed. Nowadays, it's one of his most often performed symphonies. It also happens to be his longest symphony - one, with its sheer breath of scope, asks for the listener to adjust his or her internal clock. And this performance is nothing short of epic. Recorded in the legendary 'Decca' venue of the Sofiensaal, the producer/engineer team were the equally legendary John Culshaw and John Parry.

“Splendidly recorded in the Sofiensaal in 1966 ... the Vienna Philharmonic responds to [Solti's] direction with great fervour and incisiveness” Penguin Guide
