The penultimate edition of the complete symphonies of Anton Bruckner conducted by Andris Nelsons at the head of the famous Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra continues. This publication is dedicated to Symphonies n° 2 and N° 8, and a work by Wagner, a true "God" and role model to the Austrian composer.

Following a surprisingly soft and amorphous Prelude from the Meistersinger von Nürnberg (as if the Latvian conductor wanted to erase the nationalistic and historical connotations by showing that the Leipzig of today is not the Nuremberg of the 1940s), Symphony No. 2 (here in its 1877 version) emerges in a mystical aura. Together with its sister pieces, the First and Sixth, it is part of a trio of lesser-known and rarely-performed works by the composer. However, it was his first major achievement, whose exemplary unity would not be seen again until the Fourth, a few years later. The clarity of its construction and its communicative warmth, however, make it an excellent introduction to the particular and fascinating world of Bruckner.

The performance of the Eighth is the culmination of six years of hard work, strewn with doubts and discouragement. Bruckner's most extensive symphony is also arguably the zenith of his genius. Andris Nelsons chose the 1890 version edited by Leopold Nowak, which was a considerably shortened form of the original. The question of choosing a version remains a stumbling block for conductors and musicologists today, as Bruckner constantly, and often reluctantly, modified his scores under pressure from his friends and publishers. Hailed a triumph at its premiere, this "Apocalyptic" symphony (according to musicologist Harry Halbreich) touches on the metaphysical, particularly in the twenty-seven minutes of its fabulous Adagio that seems to transport us up into the cosmos, in search of the origins of the world. © François Hudry/Qobuz

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
