“… Very committed interpretations by the Latvian National Symphony under Andris Poga make all three symphonies, different as they may be, a real listening experience.” ****

Norbert Tischer – Pizzicato.lu – 12 September 2022
“…It is an interpretation rich in contrasts that clearly brings out the mesh of motifs, impressively presenting us with the architecture of the composer’s multi-dimensional world of thought. Rapid and brisk tempi, to the point of breathlessness, and dynamic differences that astonish, as well as abrupt gestures, characterize the first movement and with it Bruckner’s sense of inner uncertainty, which continues in the Adagio. Poschner not only shapes this solemnly and sensitively, but he likewise expresses the movement’s sense of conflict… The orchestra plays very well, and the sound recording is spacious and has depth appropriate to the work.” ****

“… Sébastien Billard has been conducting the Orchestre de la Garde Républicaine for a long time. To the best of their ability, they let the colors as well as the elegance and refinement of the scores be heard, thus also contributing to the exquisite display of the individual composer’s voice.”

“…JoAnn Falletta has recorded not the suites, but the original version, and presents these entertaining musical pieces with wit esprit and verve. Above all, the tonal sophistication and joyful energy of the orchestral part are captivating, as is the hilarious recitation of the three narrators, who make the poems absolutely delicious.” ****
