Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording of Anton Bruckner’s eighth symphony is performed in its original version completed in 1887. Because of the piece’s boldness, Bruckner’s contemporaries criticized the work, and convinced him to revise the piece. Here, Fabio Luisi leads the Philharmonia Zurich in this “huge cathedral” of a work, bringing out the perfections in the original, unrevised version.
