Anton Bruckner

Symphonies Nos. 1 & 7

Wiener Philharmoniker, Christian Thielemann


"On the occasion of the Bruckner bicentenary, the Wiener Philharmoniker recorded its first ever complete Bruckner cycle under the baton of Christian Thielemann. In addition to the well-known canon of nine symphonies, the two earliest Bruckner symphonies in F minor and D minor, which are a world premiere on DVD and Blu-ray, were also recorded for the first time in the orchestra's history. This uniquely complete edition from the Musikverein and Salzburg Festival, featuring 11 symphonies, also includes extensive conversations with Christian Thielemann about each symphony and insights into his rehearsal work. “With the First, they [...] provided an hour of happiness. [...] An overwhelming event, entirely of philharmonic sound”. (Kronen Zeitung) // “Thielemann conducted Bruckner's Seventh as a human drama in philharmonic splendour”. (Die Presse). BONUS: Discovering Bruckner with Christian Thielemann. PROGRAM: Bruckner: Symphony No. 1, Symphony No. 7"
