Recorded live at the Philharmonie Berlin, this recording captures a truly gripping performance of Bruckner’s 7th Symphony, bringing an insightful, theatrical interpretation of epic grandeur to one of the greatest late-Romantic symphonies.

This performance illuminates a landmark event - Daniel Barenboim’s week-long Bruckner cycle with his Berliner Staatskapelle in June 2010. The concert featured on this recording drew 13 minutes of uninterrupted applause from the exhilarated audience.

The press said of this magical concert: “[Barenboim’s] Bruckner is conceived and performed very theatrically, like an opera without words” (Der Tagesspiegel). In the mighty orchestral build-ups, the effect is hair-raising, “like watching a Gothic cathedral arise in time lapse” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).
