Fanfare, November 2016

Thielemann, employing the 1932 Orel edition, gives a structurally cogent and emotionally satisfying performance that makes a powerful case for the Ninth being Bruckner’s most fully realized symphonic work, even without a finale. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

Andrew Quint
Fanfare, September 2016

The opening movement unfolds patiently and inevitably, with a strong sense of organic development, concluding with a mood of gathering strength. Plenty of conductors deliver the rhetorical side of Bruckner’s music—the power, luminous devotion, and architectural aspects—but Thielemann makes it beautiful as well. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

Audiophile Audition, June 2016


Christian Thielemann and the Dresden Staatskapelle are in fine form here, with a recording to match.

The Dresden Staatskapelle do an excellent job. A live performance recording is always a challenge, and the orchestra plays with emotion and precision. It’s certainly among the best Bruckner symphonies I’ve heard (and seen). © 2016 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
