The Bruckner Orchestra Linz and the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna, under the overall direction of Markus Poschner, have decided to embark on a unique expedition to mark the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth: the recording of all the symphonies of the genius loci, and for the first time in all versions. By the anniversary year 2024, this extraordinary edition will be available in its entirety on the Capriccio label.
The uniqueness of this project lies not only in its entirety, but above all in its radically new interpretive approach. The Bruckner Orchestra Linz and the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna have been intimately familiar with an authentic performance practice of Bruckner for decades. Poschner, with these two orchestras, which historically accurately depict Bruckner's sphere of influence, exposes his symphonies in an unheard-of new way, makes the music dance and sing, traces the Austrian dialect of sound musically, and in the process discovers many surprising things that have so far either been ignored, misunderstood, or simply unnoticed in the reception history of these symphonies. Bruckner comes from Upper Austria, but he is not ours alone.
alone. His music belongs to the world, is heard throughout the world, and thus the world always hears of his origin.
Bruckner is and makes world.
We make his music unmistakable
