Since taking up his post as principal conductor of the Dresden Staatskapelle in 2012, Christian Thielemann has launc hed each new concert season with a Bruckner symphony. In autumn 2015 he chose the Sixth for the opening concert at Dresden’s historic Semperoper, and for the Sächsische Zeitung this performance marked 'another Bruckner triumph for Dresden'.

“…the playing of the Staatskapelle Dresden is everything one could wish for, both on a soloistic level and as an ensemble unified in a common goal. Melodic lines and inner voices are beautifully articulated, and the blending of the brass is an art form in itself.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2017

“The film presentation is traditional: this is a straightforward film of a concert performance, blessedly free of any gimmickry. The pictures are sharp and always relevant to what we are hearing. The Blu-ray sound is excellent. In every respect this is a very distinguished account of Bruckner’s Sixth.” MusicWeb International, 17th April 2017

Bruckner: Symphony No. 6 in A major


This is the fifth volume of the on-going recording project of Bruckner’s complete Symphonies by Paavo Järvi and Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra. In the end this project will be comprised of nine symphonies, and so-called “Nullte” Symphony in D Minor. Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra boasts long tradition of Bruckner performances, and in early 1980s they attained special attention when Eliahu Inbal recorded the acclaimed recordings of the Symphonies No. 3, No. 4 and No. 8, which developed into the recording of complete Bruckner symphonies. Recorded live in Alte Oper in Frankfurt and edited from multiple performances, this new recording presents new insight into this neglected masterpiece by Bruckner. As Conductor Laureate of Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, this season Järvi releases the complete Mahler Symphonies with the orchestra on DVD (Unitel). Järvi also holds the position of Music Director Laureate of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and takes up the position of Chief Conductor of the NHK Symphony Orchestra from the 2015/16 season.

“Structure, emotion - Paavo Järvi proves once again in this superb Bruckner Sixth why he is deservedly one of the most recorded of today's conductors.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2015

Symphony No. 7 in E Major

Nowak 1954


Ever since the tenure of its chief conductor Eduard van Beinum (1945–59), the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has cherished one of the greatest Bruckner symphonic traditions in the world. With this release of Bruckner’s Sixth and Seventh Symphonies, Mariss Jansons and his Amsterdam-based orchestra add a new chapter to the RCO’s impressive performance and recording history of Bruckner’s works.

Includes RCO Live catalogue 2015

“The playing, as you might expect from this supreme orchestra, is magnificent; and, as you might expect from this conductor, the performances unfold like perfectly lubricated machines. But what both works lack in all this efficiency is any real character.” The Guardian, 27th March 2015 ***

“These are brisk, energised accounts with real crispness of attack and sustained momentum...The live sound in the Concertgebouw is absolutely first rate in terms of balance, dynamics and lack of obtrusive noise. This bargain twofer represents the essence of Jansons' Bruckner.” MusicWeb International, 3rd April 2015

“Jansons’s performances of the Symphonies Nos 6 and 7 take the music out of the imposing gloom of the cathedral and into the bright, fresh air. Everything feels light and fluid, like a graceful dance or an innocent folk song — exquisite in its own way.” Financial Times, 10th April 2015

“Asked to nominate a single word that sums up Mariss Janson's approach to these particular Bruckner symphonies, it would be 'fluidity' ... The dancing episode for strings with woodwind sat fig E (5'32") finds Jansons more or less bang on target metronome-wise, the playing warmly affectionate, the genial mood a natural outgrowth of what had preceded it.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2015

Bruckner: Symphony No. 6 in A major

(ed. L Nowak)


Philharmonie Festiva, Gerd Schaller

Bruckner’s Sixth is one of his most genial symphonies and might be considered to inhabit a world not too distant from the symphonies of Schubert, Dvorák and even Beethoven’s Pastoral. Not only are its many melodies immediately appealing, but it is also, in the words of the composer, his ‘cheekiest’ (‘die Keckste’). If one thinks of Bruckner as the composer of massive, monumental works with awe-inspiring spiritual aspirations, the idea that he composed a ‘cheeky’ symphony will come as quite a surprise.

This fine performance completes the Philharmonie Festiva’s Bruckner cycle, performed in the context of the Ebrach Summer of Music (Ebracher Musiksommer). It has been an extraordinary and very valuable achievement, often exploring unusual and in some cases unperformed variants of the symphonies, many in editions by Professor William Carragan, and played them all to the highest standards (the core of the orchestra is formed by musicians from the major ensembles of Munich). Behind it all stands the figure of conductor Gerd Schaller, who founded the Philharmonie Festiva in 2008, and is the driving force of this unique festival in the village of Ebrach in Upper Franconia. - Ken Ward, the Bruckner Journal, UK

OÖ Jugendsinfonieorchester (Jugendsinfonieorchester Oberösterreich), Rémy Ballo

Rémy Ballot and the symphonies of Anton Bruckner, performed at Bruckner's place of work, the basilica of St. Florian in Upper Austria, are an extraordinary collection of artistic abundance which becomes manifest for the fourth time in this CD release. In 2016 the annual Brucknertage festival centered around the ‘Sixth’, and once again the musical youth of the Upper Austrian Symphonic Youth Orchestra enjoyed the great honour of giving a celebrated performance in this oneof-a-kind setting. Their youthful vigour and professionalism combined with the intuition of Rémy Ballot creates a unique and exciting interpretation, and appends another worthy opus to this series which has been critically acclaimed and honoured with numerous prestigious international awards.

“Although this is still a very spacious interpretation, the pacing of the symphony's faster music is appropriate to the reverberant acoustic...and slower sections are nurtured with sensitivity and warmth. Few passages sound slow in the context of the performance as a whole, and the result has an inner logic that's very compelling.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2017
