About the album

Symphony no.1 (Linz version, 1866); Symphony no.2 (Second version, 1877); Symphony no.3 (Second version, 1878); Symphony no.4 (Second version, 1878/80); Symphony no.5 (Original version, 1876); Symphony no.6 (Original version, 1953); Symphony no.7 (Original version, 1883); Symphony no.8 (Second Version, 1892); Symphony no.9 (Original version, 1896). 

This 11 discs set is one of Challenge Classics greatest achievements so far. The quality of the performances – by both conductor and orchestra – and of the SACD recordings make this Bruckner’s complete survey a primary reference for anyone interested in such repertoire.

Symphony no.1
"Jaap van Zweden is the ultimate Bruckner-conductor. Whoever still doubts that, should listen to this recording.”  (Telegraaf)
Symphony no.1
['']...With warm and clear sound on both CD and SCAD layers, it is difficult to think of a finer version of the First Symphony in the catalogue...[''] (Gramophone)
Symphony no.2
Van Zweden's recording is very fine... (Gramophone)
Symphony no.3
Jaap van Zweden is now the leading interpreter of Bruckner's Symphonies, and has trained his orchestra to perform them brilliantly. This is a leading recommendation. (BBC Music Magazine)
Symphony no.3
This is a resplendent addition to an important cycle in the making. (Gramophone)
Symphony no.4
This is a deeply impressive Bruckner Fourth. It is one of those performances in which the reading and its realisation are of a piece: a finely considered concept that elicits orchestral playing which is at one with the music itself. (Gramophone)
Symphony no.4
The NRPO appear to have a real rapport with their director, and are a very fine orchestra, producing a solid Bruckner sound in their Hilversum studio, which is quite a reverberant space. Most importantly, van Sweden seems to have a clear structural map of the work in his head, so that there is a sense of knowing where he is going, both within each movement and in the final culmination of the work as a whole. (HRAudio.net)
Symphony no.6
Perhaps the most rigorous performance of Bruckner's Sixth Symphony that the SACD medium has yet enjoyed (Classical CD Choice)
Symphony no.6
Exceptional engineering achieved by Challenge Classics, with natural-sounding timbres and an extremly realistic sense of acoustic space (International Record Review)
Symphony no. 7
Conductor and orchestra bring out the structural and thematic complexity of the final movement, in a fine end to another very strong and recommended performance. (Classical Net Review)
Symphony no.7
Dutch conductor Jaap van Zweden sits right inside the DNA of this extraordinary music. The opening movement’s patchwork construction is kept gloriously buoyant and throughout the work Bruckner’s abrupt turnarounds of harmonic direction are laid bare. Exciting in-your-face music-making.(Classic FM)
Symphony no.8
The recording quality of this issue is quite magnificent. This performance will be presented in an intelligent, sympathetic and profoundly musical manner. This is a very important recording from an increasingliy important conductor, fully deserving of the accolade 'Outstanding'.
(The International Record Review)
Symphony no.9
Jaap van Zweden provides one of the better Bruckner Ninths I've heard. It is, above all, a flowing performance — a rare thing in Bruckner, particularly in the Ninth. (Musicweb-international)
