Bruckner: Symphony No. 3 / London PO; Skrowaczewski

Album Summary

>Bruckner, Anton : Symphony no 3 in D minor, WAB 103
Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

From its opening expectant hush via its central Adagio movement (composed in memory of Bruckner's mother) to its Austrian folk dance-influenced final movement, Bruckner's Symphony No. 3 displays both the key influence of Wagner and the composer's structural flair, which earned his symphonies the description 'cathedrals of sound'. Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, currently the world's oldest major working conductor, is renowned for his affinity with Bruckner and the LPO has performed Bruckner's symphonies under his baton many times. This recording was taken from a very well critically received live concert performance at Royal Festival Hall, London, in March 2014. Mr. Skrowaczewski uses his own, unpublished edition of the Symphony in this recording, offering the listener a unique experience and an opportunity to get inside the mind of one of Bruckner's finest interpreters.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
This is outstanding. I would go so far as to put it alongside the Bohm (1971 on Decca) as the two greatest recordings ever. How does it differ? The first movement is faster, and all the rest are a bit slower. Both performances take about 57 minutes. The sound has less bass and more clarity. Both conductors obviously know this music in a way few others ever had. Wonderful sound.
