BRUCKNER-4-BOX

Anton Bruckner: Symphony No. 4

Awarded with an International Classical Music Award 2022

3 versions + alternative movements and fragments
Bamberger Symphoniker, Jakub Hrůša
4 CDs // Accentus ACC30533

"The technical level and the dedication of the Bamberg Symphony together with Hrůša’s exceptional interpretation raise this Bruckner to the very highest level, not least because the recorded sound is equally outstanding."

"No one who claims to know his Bruckner should pass this box by."

(Remy Franck, Pizzicato)

OUR (HI)STORY

A journey through our history: Recently the audio book "Böhmen liegt in uns" (in German) about the history of our orchestra was published by Accentus! On 4 CDs we span the arc from the Prague roots to the times of Mozart to the present to Bamberg. The audio book was penned by Eva Gesine Baur, with captivating readings by Nora Gomringer, Jens Harzer and Meike Rötzer. In addition, it contains recordings of the orchestra from the respective historical era covered.

OUR BAMBERG DIARY #2

Just in time for our anniversary in mid-March 2021, we published our Bamberg Diary #2 - China. Again with fantastic pictures by Andreas Herzau and essayistic contributions about the cultural exchange of the Bamberg Symphony on their tours - this time through Asia.

THE GERMAN RECORD CRITICS' AWARD FOR OUR MAHLER IV

Our Mahler 4 recording from summer 2020, conducted by our principal conductor Jakub Hrůša, and together with Anna Lucia Richter, has won the prestigious German Record Critics' Award! The prize is awarded for the best recordings of the past 18 months.

The jury described our recording as a "fine recording that exceeds all expectations" in its statement: "One experiences highly intelligent, skillfully shrewd music-making as from one cast. There is an immediate reaction, instrumentally optimal variations are offered. Hrůša shapes and indulges, but at the same time hears the ambiguous behind the beauty and intimacy, dares also the sarcastic, tenderly crude."
