Bruckner: Symphony no.8 (1887 version) / Bavarian State Orchestra, Kent Nagano

Album Summary

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

Notes & Reviews:

Conductor Kent Nagano leads the Bavarian State Orchestra in the original 1887 version of Bruckner's Eighth Symphony. This version, which is extremely technically demanding and very difficult to play as an ensemble, differs strikingly from the twenty-minute-shorter second version that is usually performed, being much more abrupt in its musical expression, and with a completely different overall import that is far ahead of its time.
