Like his illustrious Bruckner colleagues of the past, Eugen Jochum, Günter Wand and Bernard Haitink, Christian Thielemann has performed one version after another of the great Viennese symphonist's works. No sooner had he completed his fine Bruckner concert series with the Dresden Staatskapelle than he was making a new recording for Sony Classical of the Fourth Symphony, the "Romantic", performed at the 2020 Salzburg Festival, this time conducting the Wiener Philharmoniker. This Fourth follows the Third & Eighth Symphonies from the same publisher. Before that there was also Symphony N° 5 with the  Munich Philharmonic (2005, Deutsche Grammophon), to add to a very fine Seventh with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra published by the Berlin phalanx's own label as part of a boxed set of Bruckner's nine symphonies performed by several conductors.

Not always easy to follow... but when you love Bruckner you don't keep count, especially as he is one of the German conductor's favourite composers, and of whom he refines his vision of the nine masterpieces year after year. This new complete set, which will be the first by the Viennese with just one conductor, should be completed in 2024 on the occasion of the bicentenary of the birth of Anton Bruckner, who is increasingly popular with conductors around the world. The days when his music seemed abstruse and interminable are far behind us.

Over time, Christian Thielemann's baton, if not his eruptive character, has softened and become more personal. He no longer seeks to follow slavishly in the footsteps of the great German conductors of the mid-twentieth century, finding his own style, a mixture of grandeur and powerful warmth, with fairly measured tempos that allow the music to breathe in all its plenitude. This new cornerstone in the immense Brucknerian edifice is firmly rooted in the German tradition and at the same time exploits the inexhaustible resources of the Viennese musicians, with whom Thielemann seems to be in perfect harmony. © François Hudry/Qobuz

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.
