Track List

 

Sir Colin Davis conductor

'A magisterial account' Daily Telegraph

'A remarkable performance, personal and far-seeing' Gramophone

Bruckner's symphonies are often described as 'Gothic cathedrals in sound,' an apt description considering the composer's devout faith and early vocation as an organist. He died before he could finish his Symphony No 9 but within its three movements can be found some of his most complete music, imbued with a sense of deep solace and resolution.

Reviews

'A magisterial account' Daily Telegraph

'A remarkable performance, personal and far-seeing' Gramophone

'Davis rises to the height of the composer's tragic vision. His grasp of the whole work is masterly. And no praise is too high for the playing of the magnificent orchestra' Sunday Times

'It's a towering, deeply affecting account of this profound piece. What impresses throughout the reading besides the sheer quality of the playing, is Davis's control of shape and pace' Evening Standard

'He embraces the grandeur and penetrates to the anguish and tragedy that haunt each movement. The extraordinary rapport between him and the LSO results in luminously beautiful playing'  Sunday Telegraph

'Time and again I was struck by fine, shapely, expressive phrasing, or rounded beautifully balanced orchestra sound' BBC Music Magazine
