All the Bruckner symphonies… on an organ

All the Bruckner symphonies… on an organ

Press release:

Over the past four years (2020-2024), German conductor and organist Hansjörg Albrecht has recorded Bruckner’s complete symphonic oeuvre as a transcription for organ for the first time worldwide.

This colossal project, entitled Anton Bruckner: Die Sinfonien, is under the patronage of Christian Thielemann and will find its crowning finale in mid-June with the release of a CD box set containing all the symphonies in the Bruckner organ cycle. The recordings took place at renowned concert venues and historic original locations with spectacular organs in Europe.

Alongside the respective symphony, each album also features a so-called Bruckner Window of the 21st century. Behind this are ten composition commissions that Hansjörg Albrecht has awarded to contemporary, internationally renowned composers with an affinity for Bruckner.
