In the accompanying essay, “The Art of Controlled Ecstasy”, the author confidently proclaims that Thielemann, more so than any other conductor on the current scene is the ideal exponent of the Germanic Bruckner tradition of performance. Whether or not one subscribes to this notion, there is no denying the excellence of this release. Thielemann does an admirable job with these two popular works. He is particularly sensitive to the perpetual ebb and flow of Bruckner’s syntax and sprawling architecture. The pacing, albeit somewhat deliberate is very effective. It’s remarkable how Thielemann’s Spartan podium presence elicits such intensity and concentration on the part of his players. The videography is finely etched and deft in its composition and editing. The sound pickup is rich and three dimensional. Observing this conductor and great orchestra only heightens the transcendent quality of the aural experience. Even those never convinced by this music may find themselves reconsidering.
