Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 / Janowski, Orch. de la Suisse Romande

Album Summary

>Bruckner, Anton : Symphony no 4 in E flat major ("Romantic"), WAB 104
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is the last release in PentaTone's Bruckner Symphonies cycle with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. Gramophone wrote, 'There's more than a touch of the great Eugen Jochum in Janowski's approach.'

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Marek Janowski has been a great Bruckner conductor for 20 or 30 years, and this is part of a complete set recorded in glorious sound in Geneva. This one is from October of 2012. This is a symphony of horns, and the horns sound wonderful. The strings are warm and dark. It's a full sound. This is great conducting by an architect of the podium. Bruckner is a favorite composer of mine, and this is my favorite Bruckner symphony. This is great Bruckner. The orchestra, too, seems to have come into a period of greatness. Their sound is glorious. So Janowski stays among our top recommendations. The three greatest ones include the Decca Bohm and the EMI Karajan as well as this one.

Financial Times, 18th January 2014
Janowski, a no-nonsense Brucknerian, showcases his orchestra's singing violins and sensitive woodwinds, but the cello lines are alarmingly thin and the overall sound lacks the majesty this music demands.

Notes & Reviews:
