Bruckner, Anton

Symphony no.8 in C minor (Haas edition)


WDR Sinfonieorchester Koln


Jukka-Pekka Saraste


‘What makes the 8th symphony so special to me is the richness of its atmosphere. I am always excited by the dramatic first subject of the first movement, which is based on the same rhythmical motive as appears in the beginning of Beethoven’s Ninth symphony. I admire the innocence and beauty of the trio of the second movement, the intensity of the cello melody in the Adagio, and the restless finale, as it rides on top of the “Feierlich” chorales played by the brass.

‘The reason I now perform the Haas edition of the second version of this symphony is that it contains some fascinating sections taken from Bruckner’s first version. In my opinion these short additions make the symphony richer and more imaginative, preserving certain elements of the composer’s personality.’
- Jukka-Pekka Saraste
