Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
This account is excellent - perfectly paced and balanced - and the smallish orchestra is all to the good in making Bruckner's stark originality clear. But it would be unfair to regard the work itself, or this fresh account of it, as primarily to be listened to for instruction. The Second is a lovable and absorbing work, to be treasured for itself.

The Observer
Bruckner played by a chamber orchestra?...Yet when played with the transparency, flexibility and individual character of these admired Swedish musicians, the results are exhilarating...If you have an obstinate resistance to Brucknerian weightiness, this recording offers a fresh, totally unturgid approach.

The Guardian
It's certainly revealing to hear Bruckner's textures opened out so that the inner voices are more audible, and the woodwind lines are for once not swaddled in huge pillows of string sound.

The Times
A Bruckner symphony played by a chamber orchestra?...Bruckner's lyrical moments achieve a wonderful intimacy, while his quirky structures and changing textures knit together in a manner hard to duplicate with big forces. Dausgaard's players, horns especially, revel in the spotlight. Refreshing.
