‘A very special issue. Don’t hesitate to buy or download it.’
David Mellor, Classic FM, July 2013

‘To me, Bruckner is one of the greatest composers,’ says conductor Stanisław Skrowaczewski. ‘He is another Mozart: his music is magical … its message speaks about the infinite, transcendental cosmos, God, timelessness, love and tragedy.’ The opening melody of Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony apparently came to the composer in a dream: a friend from Bruckner’s younger days played the theme on a viola, with the words: ‘This will bring you success.’ If this is true it was prophetic: the work was one of the greatest successes of the composer’s career.
