Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine, March 2015
Turn straight to the Scherzo of Mario Venzago's Fifth for a Landler of considerable charm and subtle clumsiness...they pull on the country clogs of Mahler's childhood Landler-memories, not the more-or-less polished army boots of traditional performances...if you've followed [Venzago] this far, you'll certainly want to hear his final and most iconoclastic assault on the canon.
The production of the CPO series A Different Bruckner under the conductor Mario Venzago concludes with a recording of the composer's Symphony No. 5 in B flat in its 1878 version. This interpretation of the Fifth may make feelings run even higher than they have so far with Mr. Venzago's previous Bruckner renderings because, as he himself writes, “The present reading does almost entirely without the song element and instead establishes musical discourse. The orchestra speaks and debates as if the instruments were the members of a parliament engaged in serious, sober, and brilliant discussion.”Notes & Reviews:
