Notes & Reviews:
"This installment features Bruckner's Eighth Symphony, one of the longest symphonies written in the Romantic era. The DVD goes far beyond simply creating a video of a performance; although in this case, the splendid cinematography and other-worldly performance would make this DVD absolutely worthwhile even if it was just a performance video. The DVD goes much further, however, and includes a well-produced, insightful, informative, and utterly captivating 12-part documentary... His interpretation of Bruckner is quite intimate and insightful, which he discusses in the documentary interviews. This understanding translates directly into a profoundly satisfying performance that listeners will undoubtedly savor." -All Music GuideNotes & Reviews:
