Bruckner/ Haydn: Wand


Add To Wish List + £19.99 - Out of stock

Few conductors have made a greater contribution to our present day understanding of Bruckner than Gunter Wand (1912-2002). His readings of the composer's symphonies invariably concentrated on their texture and hence, their spirit. During the great final phase of his career, documented here, Wand devoted himself increasingly to Bruckner's works and his interpretations became more and more free, revealing both heartfelt emotion and musical intelligence. He developed trademark fidelity towards Bruckner, which led to insightful readings of his works. Wherever possible Wand returned to the versions representing most clearly the composer's intentions - be it the"urtext" or scrupulously restored versions. In the television recording of Bruckner's Symphony No.6, Gunter Wand and his inimitable style of conducting are brought back to life in a particularly impressive way. The films of his concerts at the Schleswig Holstein Musik Festival, from 1987 onwards, can truly be regarded as Gunter Wand's legacy to the NDR Sinfonieorchester, "his" orchestra for almost 20 years, on which he has left a mark like no other.
