Symphony No. 4, ‘The Romantic’

Bruckner’s main contribution to music was his huge symphonic output. No. 4 is a good place to start, a paen to the romanticism of nature.

Recommended recording:
Berlin Philharmonic/Günter Wand
RCA 74321687162

https://open.spotify.com/embed/album/0RLRsn5ZeJhEAjwLfJVA3x

 

 

Symphony No. 7

Bruckner’s most successful symphony. The first movement unfolds with extreme intensity, while the pained slow movement steals the show.

Recommended recording:
Vienna Philharmonic/Herbert von Karajan
DG 439 0372

Symphony No. 8

Written in 1887 and amended in 1890, this huge work is Bruckner’s most religious symphony. The slow movement is a spell-binding glimpse of eternity.

Recommended recording:
Berlin Philharmonic/Günter Wand
RCA 74321828662

Symphony No. 9

Although incomplete, this great work is more approachable than the Eighth – from the menacing opening of the Scherzo to the sublime final-movement Adagio.

Recommended recording:
Vienna Philharmonic/Carlo Maria Giulini
DG 427 3452

Motets

Bruckner was a fine church musician and virtuoso organist, and these a cappella motets are among the finest written in the last couple of centuries.

Recommended recording:
Corydon Singers/Matthew Best
Hyperion CDA 66062

Count Basie in the 1940s

Count Basie’s illustrious big band career is usually divided into the free-wheeling crew of the 1930s and the juggernaut of the 1950s. But in between, the Basie team of the 1940s combined solo swing and potent ensembles. Geoffrey Smith picks highlights from a great Basie band.
