BRUCKNER, A.: Symphony No. 6 (Barenboim) (NTSC) ACC-202176
BRUCKNER, A.: Symphony No. 6 (Barenboim) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) ACC-102176

This is a very good performance…The filming adds to…the music and it is interesting to watch Barenboim understated movements and conducting style. © 2014 Classical Net Read complete review

Sinfini Music, February 2014

The Sixth is a difficult symphony to pace, but given the luminous flow connecting the ideas with which Bruckner is so lavish, and on which he refuses to linger, this performance may be the ideal introduction for those who just don’t get it.

…Paul Smaczny produces with aplomb; surely a king of concert filming. With excellent woodwind and brass ensembles as well as a lovingly gilded string sound, this is a fine-tuned band. © 2014 Sinfini Music Read complete review

The Bruckner Symphony No 6 in A major is not an oft-performed work. It was never given a full performance during Bruckner’s life, yet it remains an accessible and interesting work, so I listened to this new Blu-ray concert performance with interest.

This Blu-ray disc is a complete concert before a live audience in 2010. Conductor Daniel Barenboim offers an emotional and in-control performance with the Staatskapelle Orchestra of Berlin.

The audio is excellent.

The Symphony No 6 is a worthwhile stop along the Bruckner symphonic cycle. It is flawlessly performed, and worth repeated listening. © 2014 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
