"Having recently taken up the post as Chief Conductor, Markus Poschner directed the Bruckner Orchester Linz in
an invigorating performance of Mahler’s sensational second symphony, Resurrection, at the Usher Hall on Sunday
afternoon." Miranda Heggie, HeraldScotland

"Mahler’s ‘Resurrection’ Symphony is one of those works that feels like a special occasion every time you hear it.
How many other works deploy so many forces, and keep a huge chorus in tow to sing for only the final ten minutes?
Even considering that, this was one of those particularly special occasions, a time where the playing and the sense of
occasion coalesced to produce something extremely memorable." Simon Thompson, Seen and Heard International

The timpanist's galloping assault was explosive, like Wotan thundering onto the stage. Poschner made coherent
sense of Bruckner's stop—start writing, allowing phrases – and silences – room to breathe, the Woodbird flute
providing moments of repose. Bruckner's spine-tingling coda blazed in a burst of C major sunlight to bring a majestic
performance to a triumphant close. Mark Pullinger, Bachtrack

The idea of Mahler 2 in a venue of Cadogan Hall’s proportions is almost ridiculous: the stage is cramped even for an
orchestra of non-Mahlerian scale, there’s no organ and no obvious place for the choir. Beyond that, even if the
logistics were arranged, surely the piece’s shattering climaxes would be painfully excessive for the audience at such
close range? Not a bit of it – with a clever seating plan and careful moderation of balance, the Bruckner Orchester
Linz's performance combined both the epic and the intimate in a way one doesn’t often see.
Rohan Shotton, Bachtrack

The Bruckner Orchestra Linz were magnificent and they have a great conductor in Marcus Poschner, and they surely
will soon become one of the top orchestras in Europe, if not already! After hearing Mahler's Resurrection symphony,
really want to hear their Beethoven and Bruckner too! Gregor Tassie, Seen and Heard International
