Andris Nelsons with Bruckner’s Eighth

For Andris Nelsons, Bruckner’s Eighth is a work with a unique aura: “Bruckner penetrated here into regions that were beyond the reach of other composers.” Accordingly, performing the symphony is “an existential experience” for him. This can be heard in Nelsons’s interpretation: the swelling and breaking of musical arcs develops a sonic maelstrom that is almost impossible to resist.
