Digital Booklet
Multiple Grammy Award winners Andris Nelsons and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig launch their complete cycle of Bruckner’s iconic symphonies with this recording of the Symphony No. 3, often nicknamed the "Wagner Symphony." Nelsons pairs the work with Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture, offering the chance to hear Bruckner alongside the composer closest to his own heart. Bruckner's symphonies occupy a unique place in the history of the genre: bridging the classicism of Beethoven and Brahms and the narrative drive of Wagner, Bruckner brought a new structural breadth and a personal emotional scope focused on his devout faith. His powerful harmonic language and his fulsome, brass-rich orchestration were much influenced by Wagner and within the vast scale of his music he created spiritual journeys of exceptional intensity. "I am honoured to be embarking on this project with Deutsche Grammophon and with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig to record the complete cycle of the Bruckner symphonies. This allows music lovers to follow the development of Bruckner’s thinking throughout his life. The Gewandhausorchester Leipzig is one of the world’s oldest orchestras, possessing a strong and special historical development with its connections to Bach and its Bruckner tradition. It is one of the best orchestras in the world, yet has such modesty, displaying a great understanding of the immense spirituality within Bruckner’s works." - Andris Nelsons

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
