Bruckner: Symphony No. 6 (1881 Version, Ed. B.-g.
Ballot, Rémy; Upper Austrian Youth Symphony Orchestra
Remy Ballot and the symphonies of Anton Bruckner, enacted at Bruckner's place of work, the basilica of St. Florian in Upper Austria – an extraordinary combination of artistic abundance which becomes manifest for the fourth time in a CD release with the Gramola label. This time the annual festival Brucknertage centered around “the Sixth”, and once again the musical youth of the Upper Austrian Symphonic Youth Orchestra enjoyed the great honor to give a celebrated performance in this one-of-a-kind setting. The juvenile vigor and professionalism joined by the intuition of Remy Ballot provide for some goose bumps and append another worthy opus to this series which has been critically acclaimed and honored with numerous prestigious international awards.
