Bruckner: Symphony No. 1 / Claudio Abbado

Album Summary

>Bruckner, Anton : Symphony no 1 in C minor, WAB 101
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

It is enchanting the way Abbado succeeds in revealing the Janus-faced character of the symphony...very pointed but highly elegant, in typical Abbado fashion, the pulsating, forward moving rhythms of the first movement, and truly dramatic the build-up to the first climax - these set the parameters of this interpretation.' - Peter Hagmann, NZZ

The Telegraph, 13th September 2013
The performance has that familiar Abbado glow. It is phrased with grace; its rhythms are taut; its detail of instrumental timbre is phenomenally lucid. And, above all, there is that magisterial Abbado command of perspective, a natural progression of thought from first note to last.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2013
He is, you feel, utterly beguiled by the beautiful mysteries of this symphony's split-infinitive harmonies and carnival-mirror gestures...Abbado does nothing to rein in this music's red-blooded walk on the wild side...Listening and marvelling is really the only option.
