Claudio Abbado, Lucerne Festival Orchestra – Bruckner 5

Anton Bruckner
Symphony No. 5 
in B flat major (WAB 105; Nowak edition)

Lucerne Festival Orchestra
Claudio Abbado

 “Abbado’s approach to the music of Bruckner is soft and songlike, at times tense and urgent, but constantly filled with warmth of feeling” – not only the Neue Zürcher Zeitung is full of praise when Claudio Abbado and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra play Bruckner. Their interpretation of his awe-inspiring Fifth Symphony reflects the composer’s burgeoning powers and exquisite compositional artistry. As The Guardian poetically states: “The composer himself, one suspects, might have leapt to embrace Abbado as an ideal interpreter.”
