Orchestre des Champs Elysees


Philippe Herreweghe


“Philippe Herreweghe’s ongoing Bruckner cycle with the Orchestre des Champs Élysées present the Belgian conductor as a perplexing Brucknerian. The period instruments of his orchestra are less weighty in tone than their modern counterparts, and the outcome allows light into some unexpected corners... The massive and monumental aspects are played down, and ... the quality you’ll find is an often coolish, Mendelssohnian neatness and balance.” - Irish Times, 17 April 2009

“Herreweghe’s Bruckner symphony cycle with the period instruments of his Orchestre des Champs-Elysees reaches the tremendous Fifth, a pivotal work in the composer’s development. As usual it’s a sober account, and nicely tailored, though the conductor’s knack for shaving away the sharp edges can be a mixed blessing” - The Times, 4 April 2009
