Bruckner: Symphony No 4

Bruckner Symphony No 4

Bruckner Symphony No 4

Bernard Haitink conductor

‘It’s absolutely sensational … a really mature reading, by a very mature and a highly experienced and a completely relaxed conductor’
BBC Radio 3, CD Review (UK)

Pizzicato (Luxembourg)

Bernard Haitink is internationally renowned for his interpretations of Bruckner and is widely recognised as the world’s leading Bruckner conductor.

Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony (‘Romantic’) conjures up visions of mediaeval knights, huntsmen and enchanted woodland, particularly through the prominent use of the horn in the work. One of his most popular pieces, it was treated to many revisions by the composer and this recording features the second version of the 1877/8 Nowak edition (published 1953) with the 1880 Finale.

Price: £7.99

CDs of the Week 'The LSO brass are ablaze'
Norman Lebrecht, The Lebrecht Report

Album Choice of the Month ‘His [Haitink] authority in Bruckner is unquestionable’ Hi-Fi News (UK)

***** Pizzicato (Luxembourg)

***** '
I’ve been something of a stickler with preferring Günter Wand’s recordings of the Bruckner symphonies ... But I think I’ve found an even better version in Haitink’s No. 4, not to mention the improved sonics and surround' Audiophile Audition (US)

Building a Library ‘Haitink’s lates, live Bruckner Fourth is not only the most sumptuously beautiful, it’s also the most satisfying … Few performances capture so well the sense of mystery at the heart of this symphony.’ BBC Music Magazine (UK)
