 Meister, Cornelius

 It is the only symphony by Bruckner that the composer himself gave a subtitle ‘The Romantic’. However, in keeping with usage at the time it does not refer to ‘Romanticism’ in today’s understanding of the word, but to an aesthetic attitude of the desire for the pervasion of art and nature. Hence, the French horns setting the tone from the outset can be interpreted programmatically: through them the spirit wafts through nature. For over an hour Anton Bruckner composed music in such an orgiastic and cheerful, Dionysian and Apollonian, voluptuous and boastful tone.

The ORF (Austrian Radio and Television) Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra is a top orchestra of world renown; the orchestra defines itself in the Vienna orchestral tradition. The Orchestra emerged from the former Austrian Radio Orchestra in 1969. Cornelius Meister, born in Hanover in 1980, has been principal conductor and artistic director of the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna since September 2010. With the RSO Vienna he holds regular concerts in Vienna Musikverein and Vienna Konzerthaus. Extensive tours have taken him to Japan and throughout Europe, including to Salzburg Festival. Together with the RSO Vienna, he is present on European radio, European television, on CDs and in the internet.

"... The whole performance brims with the confidence of having plently to say about Bruckner and knowing how to voice it while staying the distance. With crisp and clean recording quality from the orchestra’s own Radio Kulturhaus perfectly tailored to the perfornance ethic, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed energy courses throught the work ar every turn so that it speaks very much with its own envigorating identity and sense of discovery.,, on this eidence exoextations run high for future releases from this source."
