Tapiola Sinfonietta Symphony No. 0 in D minor (2nd version of 1869, WAB 100); Symphony No. 1 in C minor (1st version, “Linzer” version, 1866, WAB 101)
The second volume of cpo’s Bruckner cycle with Mario Venzago features the so-called ‘Symphony No. 0’ and Symphony No. 1. Venzago has assigned each pair of symphonies a specific orchestra of very different size, culture, and tradition. In Finland’s Tapiola Sinfonietta Venzago has found a relatively small but first-class orchestra that is especially receptive to his efforts towards refinement and classical limpidity.
