The world class Vienna Philharmonic, alongside the critically acclaimed conductor Christian Thielemann, have returned with a stunning new recording of Bruckner symphony cycle. The new cycle is planned to last until 2024, the year of the 200th anniversary of Anton Bruckner’s birth ? Symphony No.8 (Edition Haas) marks the start of the cycle and the first live recording of the Bruckner cycle tour, which began in October 2019 in the much-celebrated concert at the Musikvereinssaal in Vienna. The Vienna Philharmonic, who have premiered four out of Bruckner’s 9 symphonies are familiar to his music unlike any other orchestra. With Christian Thielemann they have one of the few Bruckner experts on their side who has since 2000 been a musical partner of the orchestra. Thielemann has also conducted the New Year’s Concert for the first time in 2019. Bruckner (1824—1896) was an Austrian composer best known for his symphonies, Masses and motets. Bruckner was greatly admired by subsequent composers, including his friend Gustav Mahler.
