“Bruckner was the composer who was closest to Wand’s heart and who drew from him his noblest achievements. … The playing is as always fabulous, with the brass section covering itself with glory, above all in the climax of the slow movement… The Scherzo is enormously emphatic, and I wouldn’t have been surprised to see the 87-year-old breaking into a dance on the podium, which he almost does.” International Record Review

Günter Wand (1912-2002) made an imperative contribution not only to our understanding of Bruckner but also to that of Schubert as a symphonist. Both composers were particularly close to his heart and his international breakthrough came – late in his life - with his highly-acclaimed Bruckner and Schubert recordings 1974-81.

This final issue in the TDK Günter Wand Edition – the eighth single release – brings us a ravishing performance of Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony from the Lübeck Music and Congress Hall in 1999.
