Internationally renowned Bruckner specialist Stanisław Skrowaczewski leads the London Philharmonic Orchestra in a live recording of Bruckner's Symphony No. 3. From its opening expectant hush via its central Adagio movement (composed in memory of Bruckner's mother) to its Austrian folk dance-influenced final movement, this Symphony displays both the key influence of Wagner on Bruckner, and the composer's structural flair, which earned his symphonies the description 'cathedrals of sound'.

Reviews

‘It sounds throughout as if the LPO is completely in sympathy with the conductor’s carefully controlled approach ... It feels right, end to end.’
BBC Radio 3 CD Review, 28 March 2015

‘The LPO ... bring a warmth and holistic purity’
‘Skrowaczewski keeps his head when, all around him, other conductors lose theirs.’
Gramophone, June 2015

‘Another gem from Skrowaczewski’s Indian summer.'
Classical CD Reviews, 8 April 2015

'With taut control throughout Skrowaczewski provides an awe-inspiring sense of structure honed from decades of experience. This is a notable live performance deserving of significant praise. It can rub shoulders with some of the finest recordings.'
MusicWeb International, 20 April 2015

‘A rousing rendition’
The Northern Echo, 26 March 2015

'How beautiful are the opening pages of the slow movement, exquisitely lingering and then intensely expressed, the quiet passages sacred in their searching.'
Classical Source, June 2015
