This release contains the international acclaimed Bruckner cycle of Christian Thielemann, a "magician of the Bruckner sound"(Kurier on Symphony No. 5) and the Staatskapelle Dresden, whose own Bruckner tradition dates back more than a century. Outstanding reviews emphasize the exceptionally high artistic quality of the concerts: "Once again Thielemann proved to be the unrestricted ruler on his ancestral territory, German Romantic repertoire" (Hamburger Abendblatt on Symphony No. 2). Christian Thielemann "displays the full musical maelstrom of Bruckner's Symphony No. 3" (Mnchner Merkur). "Another Bruckner triumph for Dresden" (Schsische Zeitung on Symphony No. 6). "... one would have to be hard-hearted not to be touched by this heartfelt music" (Der Tagesspiegel on Symphony No. 8).
