Of Anton Bruckner's mature symphonies, the Symphony No. 6 in A major is seriously underrated and often overlooked, perhaps because little historical controversy surrounds it. Unlike most of Bruckner's other symphonies, the Sixth was not heavily revised by the composer nor edited by well-meaning followers, and the relative lack of enormous, organ-like sonorities and long dramatic pauses makes it less recognizably Brucknerian. Yet this misfit is a coherent and organic symphony in the tradition of Beethoven and Schubert, replete with compelling melodies, propulsive motives, innovative modulations, and subtle harmonies, and students of Bruckner's music can find much originality and emotional depth in this work. Bernard Haitink and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra deliver an energetic and finely detailed performance that makes a strong case for the Sixth and reveals its inner workings with clarity, while demonstrating a strong sympathy for Bruckner's expressions, which gives the music great warmth and richness. BR Klassik has recorded this live performance with remarkably transparent sound and a wide dynamic range, so the audio resembles a studio recording with high standards and almost no extraneous noise.

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.

Herbert Von Karajan and The Grand Masters of Classical Music

30 years after his death, the Austrian Herbert von Karajan (Salzbourg 1908 – Anif 1989) still embodies the musical conductor like no other. In charge of the Berlin Philharmonic for 35 years (1955-1989), Karajan helped to elevate the orchestra to a level of global prestige. Throughout his career, he methodically diversified his repertoire: from Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner to Verdi, Wagner and Strauss…
