Christian Thielemann conducts Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony

Bruckner’s symphonies convey the ideas of trust in God and the certainty of faith like few other orchestral works. The fact that these compositions also reflect extremely personal psychological dramas can be heard vividly, particularly in the Eighth. The conductor of this 2008 performance is Christian Thielemann, about whom the press wrote that he made “the symphony resound relentlessly: its echo of thunder, its terrifying whispers, its general pauses of reflection”.
