 Marek Janowski Soloist
 Marek Janowski Conductor

 Following the completion of a highly acclaimed Bruckner Symphony cycle with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, this new release is an invigorating addition for all Bruckner aficionados.

Recorded in superior surround sound in the fine acoustics of Geneva’s Victoria Hall, the album features the renowned Berlin Radio Choir and an excellent cast of soloists. This example of outstanding virtuosity and dedication has already claimed a place as a rarity, as there is no other version available in luxurious SACD sound.
Marek Janowski and soprano Lenneke Ruiten do their part in the work, which boasts an enormous emotional compass, ranging from deepest inner contemplation to moments of ecstatic jubilation.

Michael Kube - Fono Forum magazine - March 2014

 "... The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande plays as well for Janowski here as it has for each of his symphony recordings. So, as in those previous installments, the conductor’s emotional distance is ideally balanced by the warm and rich string sound. The trombones and horns also have an excellent tone in each of their chorales, and the various wwodwind solos and obbligatos are all presented with both expression and precision. The choir matches the quality of the orchestra. The Rundfunkchor Berlin sounds like a large ensemble, but it is a well-trained one, and the clarity of the singing is ideal... "

Gavin Dixon - Fanfare - November/December 2013

"... All I can say is that this performance by Janowski, his four vocal soloists, the Berlin choir, and the Suisse Romande Orchestra is of a grace, grandeur, and nobility guaranteed to overcome the resistance of even those who are most Bruckner resistant. For them, as well as for those who need no persuading, this is urgently recommended."

Jerry Dubins - Fanfare - September/October 2013

 "... I think Janowski here can hold up his claims as one of the great Bruchner conductors. He has recorded all the numbered symphonies-most of them in Geneva in a superb acoustic environment with great SACD sound ... this Janowski series is the best we’ve had in this century."

Donald R Vroon - American Record Guide - September/October 2013

                             ***** - Very Good
