With its majestic themes soaring upwards like gothic pillars and its brilliant chorales and fanfares glowing like stained - glass windows, Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 8 is the most monumental of his orchestral works, a cathedral in sound that grows out of pianissimo murmurs. Coming after the triumphs celebrated by the composer's Seventh Symphony and Te Deum, the Eight was considered by Bruckner as the artistic climax of his career. Cleveland's Severance Hall is the venue for this performance. This hall, an eclectic yet elegant mix of Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Classicism, Egyptian Revival and Modernism was inaugurated in 1931 and is still hailed today as one of the world's most beautiful concert halls. The Cleveland Orchestra, founded in 1918, began its ascent to the upper ranks of the world's ensembles after it moved to Severance Hall in 1931.


"Care, affection evident in Cleveland Orchestra taping of Bruckner's Symphony No. 8...judging by The Cleveland Orchestra's performance Wednesday night at Severance Hall, it seems there's no composer Franz Welser-Most cares about more than Bruckner." The Cleveland Plain Dealer
