Anton Bruckner 200 (1824-2024)

Günter Wand (1912-2002) left us dozens of gramophone records: complete symphonic cycles and impressive live recordings of his concerts with the NDR Symphony Orchestra and the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. The archetypical anti-star all his life and for that very reason under-appreciated, this conductor only attained international recognition in his old age as an unequalled interpreter of classical music. Accordingly, most of these multiple-award-winning benchmark recordings date from his later years.

Günter Wand´s Bruckner recordings are critically acclaimed; this is a best-of-collection of his legendary Bruckner-Interpretations (1985 - 2000) on 8 CDs.

REVIEWS:

These could be described as the canonical recordings of Bruckner's symphonies. They date from 1985 to 2000 with two perfect orchestras and a conductor who is as if we were saying the composer's own classicism. Wand always chooses the original versions. The first symphonies are missing (zero, one and two), but they are not essential. Ideal for getting started seriously in Bruckner.
