Album Summary

Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Dedicated to his landlord, this work in four movements by Anton Bruckner, is often regarded as the ugly duckingling among Bruckner's symphonic works. Recorded here is his symphony as performed by the Monzarteumorchester Salzburg, one of is Austria's leading symphony orchestras, and conducted by Ivor Bolton.

Because of the relative scarcity of recordings of this mature work, one should greet Ivor Bolton's 2010 recording on Oehms with the Mozarteumorchester Salzburg as a welcome rendition, especially because of the fine interpretation and the clear-sounding performance they give it. Bolton is well-versed in Bruckner's style and he negotiates the sudden changes of mood and episodic writing with a coherent and unifying treatment; one never feels that he loses the threads that hold the work together, or lets its ideas meander. The orchestra is responsive to Bolton's lead and gives the symphony a balanced ensemble sound...

La Scena Musicale
Salzburg's Mozarteum Orchestra gets overshadowed at festival time by the world's best. Founded by Mozart's widow in 1841, its sound is well suited to Bruckner's bucolic reflections: large, warm and with a hint of wildness.
