Anton Bruckner: Symphony No.8 (vers. composite, ed. Haas)
Embark on a powerful symphonic journey with the Staatskapelle Berlin and Daniel Barenboim as they continue their exploration of Bruckner's last three symphonies with a performance of the composer's Symphony No.8 - sometimes called The Apocalyptic.
A work of subtle orchestration, sublime emotions and intense crescendos, Bruckner's Symphony No.8 is daring in its epic scale and lies at the heart of the composer's unique symphonic cannon.
'Daniel Barenboim's cycle of Bruckner symphonies is among his finest achievements...these are powerful, concentrated performances.' (The Guardian, June 2005)
