About

Eugen Jochum conducts the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra in Bruckner’s Fifth Symphony, a gigantic musical cathedral and a masterpiece of counterpoint.

The Abbey of Ottobeuren in Germany celebrated its 1200th anniversary in 1964 and to mark the occasion Eugen Jochum and the Concertgebouw Orchestra performed Bruckner's Fifth Symphony there with Philips on hand to record them. The LP set arrived in the shops after Jochum had completed his groundbreaking Bruckner cycle in the studio for DG but many who heard the Bruckner remembered something significantly different from Jochum's fine Bavarian Radio Orchestra version; one of the great Bruckner orchestras in something of a golden age and the thrill of live performance in a near-ideal acoustic.

The great Maria Stader gleams in the astounding Te Deum laudamus from Jochum's classic DG set. Would that there was more ...

"Jochum's mastery of his material carries all before him with a near-perfect blend of intelligence and excitement. Listen especially to the magnificent brass in the closing pages. Only the greatest of orchestras can produce playing like this at the end of an evening. A classic recording rightly restored to the catalogue in good sound and an example of Jochum's Bruckner at its best." - musicweb-international.com
