Bruckner Symphony No. 8 (Haas edition)
Lawrence Renes conductor*
London Philharmonic Orchestra

It’s become a cliché to call Bruckner’s symphonies 'cathedrals in sound'. True, Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony is the grandest and most expansive that even he ever composed; a vision constructed on a vast scale by a composer with a profound religious faith. But it’s somehow both more universal, and more intimate than that. Experience Bruckner's monumental symphony live with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
'[A performance of] depth and brilliance' Bachtrack on Lawrence Renes and the Royal Swedish Orchestra, March 2017
'The biggest share of praise, however, is due to conductor Lawrence Renes... the results are overwhelming.' The Financial Times, 2015
