'Passion, power and sensuous beauty.'
'The Best of Bruckner ... The LSO triumphs.'
'One of the most thrilling discs to land on my desk in recent history ... there is something about the entire performance that is utterly convincing. And it won't get out of my head.'
'A wonderfully detailed rendering, Davis wrings the very best from his accomplished players ... an ideal starter for the uninitiated and a must for the connoisseur.'
'The LSO's Live series is proving a great success. The architecture of the work ... is masterfully surmised.'
Sir Colin Davis, London Symphony Orchestra
Of all Anton Bruckner's symphonies, the Sixth is his most original. Its contrasting moods, and overarching theme moving from darkness to light, bring music that can be haunting one moment and ecstatic the next, culminating in one of the most enigmatic symphonic endings of the 19th century.
