Notes & Reviews:

"Yannick Nezet-Seguin turns in a stunning account of the Symphony No. 8 in C minor that will secure his reputation as a true Brucknerian and win new admirers of his conducting. This 2009 rendition is certainly one of the most awe-inspiring ever made of this apocalyptic symphony, and the clarity and wide dynamic range of ATMA's live recording provides astonishing details and inner voices that are often lost elsewhere, because Nezet-Seguin clearly has striven to make every note audible... This album is highly recommended as one of the finest of 2009." -All Music Guide

BBC Music Magazine
Here, as in the Seventh [Nézet-Séguin] is able to balance expressive suppleness with a firm enough sense of structure, relishing the spacious acoustic without allowing it to weigh the music down...[He] is clearly developing into a very interesting Bruckner conductor, and he may yet displace a few big names in this symphony.
