Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bernard Haitink is internationally renowned for his interpretations of Bruckner and is widely recognized as the world’s leading Bruckner conductor. Bruckner’s fourth, nicknamed the Romantic, conjures up visions of mediaeval knights, huntsmen and enchanted woodlands, particularly through the prominent use of the horn. One of his most popular pieces, it was treated to many revisions by the composer. This recording features Haitink leading the London Symphony Orchestra in the second version of the 1877/8 Nowak edition (published 1953) with the 1880 Finale.

"Absolutely sensational … a really mature reading, by a very mature and a highly experienced and a completely relaxed conductor." – BBC Radio 3

 A "Cool" Fourth May 19, 2014 By owen  r. (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "A good rendition by a Brucknerian Master in excellent SACD sound. Bruckner's fourth is like a trip down an undulating country road. It feels like an overcast autumn day with Haitink driving the LSO. With Gunther Wand in charge it feels like a breezy Spring day and if you were to take the trip with Klemperer it would be in the glare of noon on a summer day." Report Abuse
