Multiple Grammy Award winner Andris Nelsons and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra continue their acclaimed couplings of Bruckner and Wagner on the Deutsche Grammophon label, with the new release of a double CD recording of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 6, which Bruckner himself described as his “boldest” and “most brazen” and the Symphony No. 9, with which Bruckner struggled for nine years until his death.
The Symphonies are accompanied by Wagner’s Prelude to his last complete opera, Parsifal, and the lyrical Siegfried’s Idyll.
Andris Nelsons is successfully continuing his journey exploring Bruckner’s cycle of symphonies with the much-lauded recordings of the Symphony No. 3, released in 2017, the Symphony no. 4, released in 2018 and the Symphony No. 7, released in 2018.
This ambitious long-term recording project is combined with the production of DG’s first complete Shostakovich cycle that Andris Nelsons is recording with the Boston Symphony Orchestra which has already been awarded four Grammys.
