Anton Bruckner - Symphony No. 6; Schoenberg Bach Transcription

Victor Carr Jr. on "Bruckner's Sixth Symphony has been quite fortunate on disc in recent years with excellent recordings by Dohnányi, Wand, Eschenbach, and Chailly, as well as classic versions by Klemperer and Barenboim/Chicago. Michael Gielen's compelling new Hänssler recording certainly belongs in this company.
Schoenberg's Bach transcription makes a surprisingly apt coupling, as it too revels in clean-lined counterpoint. Schoenberg's brilliant, colorful orchestration and skillful application of dynamics renders the Prelude, and especially the Fugue, with an energized euphony hardly attainable on the organ, and has the curious effect of making the music sound thoroughly modern. Gielen's masterful conducting conveys this sense of new within old, making for a richly satisfying conclusion to this beautifully recorded disc."
