Bruckner: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 5 / Wagner: Tristan und Isolde

Andris Nelsons and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig continue their award-winning Bruckner cycle. This time the Symphonies are coupled with the Prelude and Liebestod from Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde. The album is set to be released 11 February 2022.
“As a Bruckner interpreter, Nelsons is direct, clear-sighted and spacious, the performance guided with a sure hand and a sense of inevitability but also meticulous in observing tempo and dynamic markings…The warmth and sonority of the playing at the start is enthralling and the performance unfolds with character and excitement.” – Gramophone
