Thielemann conducts Bruckner No. 5

Synopsis

For the very first time in the orchestra’s history, the Wiener Philharmoniker have engaged themselves to a complete Bruckner Cycle and chose the renowned Bruckner expert Christian Thielemann as conductor. The first recordings met with great enthusiasm and approval. “Only the highest musical perfection sounds like this” (Kurier). Bruckner’s program is greatness, pathos, sublimity. “With their warm string and beautiful brass sound, the Wiener Philharmoniker are ideal partners for him” (BR Klassik). The large-scale Bruckner Cycle extends to the composer’s 200th birthday in 2024. The Wiener Philharmoniker, who premiered four of the nine Bruckner Symphonies, are more familiar with this music than any other orchestra.
