Robin Ticciati & DSO - Bruckner: Symphony No. 6 - Hi-Fi News
If you find this Symphony, for all its stirring moments, something of a puzzle, then read the fine Tom Service Guardian piece which unravels its complexities. (If the music is entirely new, I'd even suggest skipping the opening movement in favour of the deeply touching Adagio.) What is marvellous about Ticciati's conducting is that, excited by the music, he fully conveys that to his players. You'll find the sound thicker - with less to be heard from behind the orchestra - than in the two previous DSO recordings and that's because they are in the Berlin Philharmonie here. It's still a decent sound and I enjoyed this Bruckner Sixth hugely.
