Christian Hoskins
Gramophone, April 2017

BRUCKNER, A.: Symphony No. 6 (Thielemann) (NTSC) 738208
BRUCKNER, A.: Symphony No. 6 (Thielemann) (Blu-ray, HD) 738304

As with previous releases in the cycle, the playing of the Staatskapelle Dresden is everything one could wish for, both on a soloistic level and as an ensemble unified in a common goal. Melodic lines and inner voices are beautifully articulated, and the blending of the brass is an art form in itself. Thielemann, conducting from memory, leads a well-paced and unmannered reading of the score, attentive as always to Bruckner’s dynamic contrasts. © 2017 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

Lark Reviews, January 2017

BRUCKNER, A.: Symphony No. 4, “Romantic” (Thielemann) (NTSC) 732508
BRUCKNER, A.: Symphony No. 6 (Thielemann) (NTSC) 738208

This is an interesting release from a historic angle—recreating the sound world of a bygone age combining the sounds of an 1826 fortepiano with guitar. This is one of the last recordings to be made at Finchcocks, now sadly no more. The programme is varied, including compositions by Mauro Giulani and Ferdinando Carulli amongst others. The duo work well together and in fine solo performances. © 2017 Lark Reviews Read complete review
