Symphonie nr. 5 by Anton Bruckner( )

7 editions published in 2005 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Von allen Sinfonien Anton Bruckners ist die Fünfte die kühnste, weil sie sich in ein Gestrüpp hartnäckig wiederkehrender Motive verläuft. Sie treibt den Hörer in eine Wirrnis, aus der es kein Entkommen gibt. Das Katastrophische, das Bruckner immer auszeichnet, ist hier kompromisslos auf die Spitze getrieben. Erst in seiner Neunten wagte er wieder, an so hörerfeindliche Musik anzuknüpfen. Vor neun Monaten dirigierte Bernard Haitink, einer der ganz großen Bruckner-Interpreten, die Fünfte mit den Sinfonikern des Bayerischen Rundfunks in München. Der jetzt erschienene Live-Mitschnitt (BR-Klassik) belegt eine auf jedes Partiturdetail achtende Lesart. Im Zentrum stehen bei Haitink die vielen Zusammenbrüche und das häufige Abreißen der Musik. Die mit urtümlich dunklem Klang ausgespielten Eruptionen und Klanggewitter wirken deshalb umso zerfahrener. Haitinks Version der Fünften ist das Porträt eines Komponisten, der allzu gern ans gigantische Gelingen glauben würde, den dann jedoch übermächtige Zweifel immer wieder zum Innehalten zwingen" (Süddeutsche Zeitung, 10. 11. 2010)

Nocturne symphonique : op. 43 by Ferruccio Busoni( )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thielemann kombiniert nun Werke der beiden Antipoden: neben Pfitzners selten gespieltem Klavierkonzert dirigiert er auch Busonis" Nocturne symphonique". In der zweiten Konzerthälfte erklingt dann die erste Symphonie von Johannes Brahms. Dieser galt seinerseits den einen als konservativ, den anderen als fortschrittlich. Den Solopart im Klavierkonzert von Pfitzner übernimmt der amerikanische Pianist Tzimon Barto, der schon in der Vergangenheit mit Christian Thielemann musiziert hat und für die außergewöhnlichen Herausforderungen dieses Konzerts in besonderem Maße geeignet sein dürfte. Das Magazin" Der Spiegel"bezeichnete ihn in einem großen Porträt als einen der" vielschichtigsten, unerschöpflichsten und besten Pianisten der Gegenwart". Zahlreiche CD-Einspielungen legen davon eindrucksvoll Zeugnis ab
