Thomas Dausgaard and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra take on Anton Bruckner's Second Symphony - a work that is often regarded as the epitome of Romantic grandeur. This is the next instalment in the 'Opening Doors' series where Dausgaard and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra record Symphonic works. On disc as well as in concert, Thomas Dausgaard and his Swedish Chamber Orchestra have attracted a growing international interest. The team regularly visit some of the world's leading concert venues, and just recently their performance of Schumann's Second Symphony at the BBC Proms made a great impact on audience and critics alike: ''Dausgaard's riveting way of embodying a rhythm rather than simply beating it was even more evident in the two Schumann pieces which book-ended the concert. The single movement from the unfinished G minor symphony was grippingly strange, and the great Second Symphony absolutely leapt off the page. It's true Schumann does get very obsessed with a single rhythm in the opening movement, but here that just seemed like joie de vivre.''
