Bruckner Symphony No. 8 in C minor [77']
Gerhard Markson conductor
Gerhard Markson makes a welcome return to the RTÉ NSO with his trademark repertoire. Bruckner's eighth symphony is the composer's 'Alpine World', with resounding brass climaxes and rarefied mountain heights in its pianissimos. Markson has the measure of the symphony's magnitude, its searching nature and spiritual and emotional depths making it a major work in the orchestral canon.
