Franz Josef Selig
Orchestre de la Suisse Romande
Pentatone is proud to present Anton Bruckner’s complete symphonies recorded with Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and conductor Marek Janowski.
This is a set with nothing less than a stellar sound and stunningly consistent performances throughout all the symphonies. Marek Janowski achieves a clarity and balance of sound from the whole orchestra.
It was not only his observant reading of these works, or and the invigorating performance by the orchestra, that achieved this sound - the magnificent acoustics of Victoria Hall in Geneva (where the orchestra is based and also where the recordings took place) did wonders for Bruckner’s works. As far as interpretations go, Janowski knows his Bruckner and he takes the orchestra to a higher level.
This box set contains nine SACDs plus one bonus SACD - Mass No.3 in F Minor, complementing the Bruckner Symphonies cycle. Anyone who claims that a new recording of a Bruckner symphony in SACD is already a special event in itself, one can only then imagine what having the complete symphonies in a box set would be like.
“Janowski has forged an instrument that projects Bruckner’s richly textured canvases with a combination of warmth, transparency and tonal weight, the brass sounding particularly impressive... Pentatone has provided Janowski and his Geneva forces with excellent sound. This is yet another significant step towards what I am convinced will eventually turn out to be one of the finest recorded Bruckner cycles of the 21st century.” Rob Cowan, Gramophone, September 2011 (Symphony No.7).
