SWF D14: Bruckner’s Eighth (1954)

You may find our new product in the shop, and available for streaming:


As already mentioned in the last two news items (22 March and 29 March), this is the recording of Bruckner's 8th Symphony on 10 April 1954, in Vienna. 70 years ago...

You will appreciate the outstanding sound we have been able to obtain from the tape, and by the work of Christophe Hénault, who has managed to erase many of the 'scoriae' that tainted the music.

On the home page, you'll find a link to a podcast produced by Guilhem Chameyrat, in which our President, Félix Matus-Echaiz, speaks with Jean-Claude Hulot, music journalist and Bruckner specialist. This podcast is also available to download in the digital pack (and: https://youtu.be/a1KU47jbpiY?si=plGjCra_-vwEETQn), along with:

audio files (HD and CD quality),
– a digital booklet (in French and English), with a text by Mark Kluge, and many photos,

– an article about technical aspects, A tribute to the C12, pdf format,
pdfs of the cover and inlay card, for those wishing to burn a CD (attention: over 80' of music),

– a facsimile of the concert programme.

Lastly, a wish. We have been releasing albums (the recent 'Lucerne', the 'Stockholm Ninth' etc.), but we haven't had any feedback... You are welcome to write a comment to this article. Feel free to do so!
