Bruckner Cycle

Bruckner's 8th Symphony on CD

After the Seventh, Bruckner's Eighth with the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich and Paavo Järvi has now also been released.

The Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich has "an intuitive understanding" of Anton Bruckner's music, says Paavo Järvi, "and also the necessary technical and tonal skills". That's why he started a Bruckner cycle after moving back into the Tonhalle Zürich; some works will also be recorded. After Symphony No. 7, Symphony No. 8 is now also available. The Eighth was the first Bruckner symphony to be performed by the Tonhalle-Orchester Züich in 1905. For Paavo Järvi, it is the "pinnacle" of Bruckner's oeuvre: "It is his most unusual symphony – because he was satisfied with it."
