Absolute Sound Reviews Bruckner

Andrew Quint with a new review for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 recording on The Absolute Sound:

“Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s last project for Reference Recordings garnered a 2015 Grammy nomination for Best Orchestral Recording, so expectations were high for this one, too. Perhaps that’s unfair, as Bruckner makes very different demands on a conductor and orchestra than do Dvorák and Janácek. But this performance of Bruckner’s “Romantic” symphony is an unqualified success. … The sound is gloriously full and dimensional, both in stereo and surround. Not only is there layered depth and good imaging, the full orchestral sound has mass of its own, expanding to fill Pittsburgh’s Heinz Hall at the Symphony’s grandest moments.” —Andrew Quint, The Absolute Sound
