MusicWeb International, June 2014

This latest release in the Unitel Thielemann/Dresden series is particularly important.

As a performance it’s very good indeed, crowned by the sensational Dresden strings. They are absolutely perfect for that rich, dark brown, Germanic sound that Bruckner exemplifies in so many ways.

The whole performance is an indication of just how comfortable Thielemann already was with this orchestra.

Throughout the performance it’s fascinating to see how great an effect Thielemann gets while doing surprisingly little—less is more; evidently the effect of some intense rehearsal time. The DVD sounds great…The picture quality is excellent, too. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review
