Jens F. Laurson, April 2017

…what a performance! Rémy Ballot, for all practical purposes a no-name conductor, delivers a spellbinding performance of the sprawling, ingenious original version of Bruckner’s “Wagner” Symphony, perfectly paced in the über-resonant space of Bruckner’s St. Florian, and lasting 89 minutes which Gramola somehow fit on one CD. The Bruckner-Festival pick-up band responds with verve to Ballot’s direction—and not long into the half-hour first movement, amid great silences and organic flow, it dawns on us: We are listening to the legacy of Rémy Ballot’s teacher Sergiù Celibidache! Or perhaps Bruckner directly. © 2017 Read complete review

Recorded at St. Florian, this traditionally conceived performance of Bruckner’s Third symphony in its original version is highly expressive and deeply moving. © 2014 Pizzicato
