Notes and Editorial Reviews
Also available on Blu-ray
Christian Thielemann and the Staatskapelle Dresden already released the Bruckner symphonies Nos. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 and continue their Bruckner Cycle at the Philharmonie in Munich with Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Bruckner’s first masterful composition. Thielemann, widely regarded as the leading Brucknerian of our age, opted for the more lively early original Linz version of this symphony. Buckner himself called it “a cheeky wench” and said about the finale: “Never again have I been so audacious and bold.” Christian Thielemann has been the Principal Conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden for six years. In that time, and even from before,
he has amassed a comprehensive catalogue of recordings. The Bruckner cycle with the Staatskapelle Dresden is his most ambitious and most well-received series yet.
