  • The recording took place in the St. Florian Church (Stiftskirche St. Florian) in Linz, Austria; it is here that Bruckner is buried, where he was organist and where themes of this symphony were first heard in an organ improvisation played by him in 1886

  • Boulez's much discussed interpretation is unique in its clarity of the musical structure without losing the rich expression of the symphony

  • Wiener Philharmoniker being the most prestigious orchestra in the World are at the best with silken, rich strings, full-throated brass and intricately delineated winds

  • A cclaimed performance in crystal-clear sound and an artful video version by one of the best directors of classical music videos, Brian Large

  • state-of-the-art quality

    This is an exceptional Bruckner Eighth, make no mistake. Here's why. Pierre Boulez does all of the things that a great Bruckner performance requires.[ ]Recorded live at the 1996 International Bruckner Festival, this performance is an event well worth waiting for, one of the best things Boulez has ever done for any composer. And that's saying a lot.
