SACD2 2512

Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin has won rave reviews for his masterful interpretations of Bruckner's symphonies both at home and as far afield as Australia.   Recently appointed music director of the Rotterdam Philharmonic, Nézet-Séguin's performances of Bruckner have been praised for “the vividness and ardour of his reading.” (Sydney Morning Herald).   This highly anticipated recording of Bruckner's monumental 7th symphony was made following a series of live performances of the work with the Orchestre Métropolitain du Grand Montréal in September 2006.

“Like all good Bruckner interpreters [Nézet-Séguin] made the abrupt … changes of gear sound natural and unforced, giving the impression of a mighty planet gradually orbiting around its axis.”
- Peter McCallum, Sydney Morning Herald
