Product Description

Product Description

Hyperion is delighted to present Donald Runnicles, chief conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, in his debut on the label. Runnicles commands his orchestra in Bruckner's most popular symphonyrepertoire that is at the heart of his musical life, and in which he has few living equals. Recent concerts of the works of Bruckner and Wagner have received the highest critical praise, acknowledging the orchestra and their conductor as consummate performers of this music.

Donald Runnicles is regarded as one of the finest conductors of symphonic and operatic repertoire active today. Runnicles is the General Music Director of Deutsche Oper Berlin and Chief Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. In addition he is also Music Director of the Grand Teton Music Festival in Jackson, Wyoming, and Principal Guest Conductor of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

As Chief Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Mr Runnicles has literally returned home. A Scot by birth, he conducts five weeks of the orchestra's subscription concerts in Scotland and northern England, and anchors its substantial presence at the Edinburgh Festival and BBC Proms. Runnicles is sought after by the world's finest symphony orchestras. As well as being Principal Guest Conductor of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for a decade he also maintains continuing relationships with the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony, and Philadelphia orchestras.Donald Runnicles was appointed to the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2004.

Review

Runnicles gives the symphony greater architectural cohesion Performance ***** Recording ***** BBC MUSIC ORCHESTRAL CHOICE --BBC Music Magazine, Jan'13

It is thoughtful,radiant and eminently musical, and that the modesty as well as the humanity of Bruckner's vision is faithfully realised. --Gramophone, Jan'13

The central European tradition of Bruckner interpretation is still bedevilled by inauthentic tempo changes and by ritardandos that clog the flow of the composer's mighty outpourings. One of the strengths of this resplendent account of the Seventh is its refusal to take any notice of such impertinences, originally imposed on Bruckner by people who thought his uncouth peasant genius in need of a helping hand. Runnicles keeps the whole sublime first movement at a steady, subtly flexible two in a bar; and, in the finale, he takes the chorale second subject at the same pace as the frisky opening theme, with consequent benefit to the music's structure. --Sunday Times, 06/01/13

The playing and recording of this Bruckner 7 are exemplary. What distinguishes this interpretation from others I have known (e.g. Walter, Barenboim and Chailly) is that it is 10 minutes shorter, coming in at 60 minutes compared to the usual 70. Runnicles, perhaps due to his operatic background, brings a sense of drama and urgency to his orchestral conducting. Heard live, his Beethoven symphonies are wonderful (some enterprising label should record them). The end result here in Bruckner is a fresh and imposing account of a great symphony. In line with his dramatic approach he includes the cymbal clash in the slow movement to great effect.

Well played and well recorded. The work was given the treatment which it, as a very fine example of its kind, deserved. Hope the band and conductor now do James MacMillan's oboe concerto.

BRAVO

not quite Karajan/BPO. However, a very good performance - interesting that the slightly faster tempo in the 1st movement works well
