Bruckner: Symphony no 8 / Young, Hamburg Philharmonic

Album Summary

>Bruckner, Anton : Symphony no 8 in C minor, WAB 108
Conductor Ensemble Composer


Exceptional listen, beautiful work
This is my first exposure to the Bruckner 8th, and to Maestro Young, and I'm duly impressed. Truly, if this is representative of Young's handling of Bruckner, then she may have ruined me for any other conductor. The piece itself, which Bruckner considered the artistic high point of his career, is gorgeous and robust, especially in the Allegro moderato and Adagio sections. And the recording is pristine: beautiful room sound, great dynamic range, and every instrument captured with exceptional clarity. I see that Young has recorded other Bruckner works with the Hamburg Phil, and I can't wait to see what she's done with those.
