Album Summary

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

Notes & Reviews:

What makes Bruckner's eighth symphony so special to Jukka-Pekka Saraste is the richness of its atmosphere. He is always excited by the dramatic first subject of the first movement, which is based on the same rhythmical motive as appears in the beginning of Beethoven's Ninth symphony. Saraste chooses to perform the Haas edition because it contains some fascinating sections taken from Bruckner's first version. In his version, Bruckner, advised by his well-meaning supporters, appears to have tried to create a greater symphonic unity and line.
