Notes and Editorial Reviews

This set includes 3 DVDs (Bruckner's Symphonies 6, 7 & 8) plus 2 CDs (Bruckner's 4th Symphony).

Since Sergiu Celibidache’s appointment as their chief conductor in 1979, the Munich Philharmonic developed into one of the finest orchestras in the world. Their performances of Bruckner, in particular, were in a class of their own and where orchestra and conductor truly excelled. It is in the symphonies of Anton Bruckner that the grandeur of the music unfolds organically, its power innocent of all brutality, its monumentality issuing from stillness and austerity. Says Celibidache, “Every performance of a Bruckner symphony is a first performance, every rehearsal is a thousandfold NO designed to achieve a single YES.”
