Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks – Mariss Jansons director
Symphony no. 8 Anton Bruckner
The "Symphony of all symphonies", the "Pinnacle of the Romantic symphony" - words fail to express the musical, melodic and architectural splendour of Bruckner's Eighth Symphony. The outcome of a long spiritual journey, it is also a musical testament that the composer bequeathed to posterity. The splendid tonal qualities of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks are on a par with this unclassifiable work, masterfully conducted by Mariss Jansons.
