Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 in Eb Major ‘Romantic’
Performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Bernard Haitink
Bernard Haitink is well known for his interpretations of Bruckner. Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony, ‘Romantic’, creates visions of the Austrian woods, particularly through the prominent use of the French horn in the composition.
One of Bruckner’s most popular pieces, it was treated to many revisions by the composer and this recording features the second version of the 1877/8 Nowak edition (published 1953) with the 1880 Finale.
Bernard Haitink’s previous recordings with London Symphony include his Grammy Award-nominated Beethoven Symphony cycle, which also received the title of ‘Benchmark’ Beethoven Cycle from BBC Music Magazine.
Haitink has also released the complete Brahms Symphonies and Strauss’s ‘Eine Alpensinfonie’ to international acclaim.
This CD is to be issued December 13, 2011
