Notes & Reviews:
The recording of this symphony started a cycle of Bruckner's complete symphonies with the Staatskapelle Dresden under their principal conductor Christian Thielemann that is to be produced over the course of several years - it's a living monument of musical architecture. Christian Thielemann once again shows his talent for the German Romantic repertoire with a highly acclaimed interpretation of Bruckners popular Symphony No. 8. With this concert Christian Thielemann made a grandiose entry as a prospective principal conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden. "... it is so mighty, and with such a depth of sound ... that one would have to be hard-hearted not to be touched by this heartfelt music" wrote the Berlin daily Der Tagesspiegel after this concert featuring Anton Bruckner's Eighth Symphony performed by the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden.
