BRUCKNER ORCHESTER LINZ

The Bruckner Orchestra Linz were magnificent and they have a great conductor in Markus 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!

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.

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.

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.

The history of the Bruckner Orchester Linz spans 200 years of tradition and excellence. In the last three decades, it has won an international reputation as one of the leading orchestras of Central Europe. Consisting of 128 musicians, the orchestra is not only the concert orchestra for the state of Upper Austria but also the opera orchestra at the Landestheater Linz, and participates in the Bruckner Festival, the Ars Electronica Festival and the Linzer Klangwolke. The Bruckner Orchester Linz has performed extensively in The United Kingdom (2016, 2018), The United States (2005, 2009, 2017), Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan and France. Recent tours have featured concerts in Cologne, Paris, Vienna and Istanbul and since 2012 the Orchestra is having its own concert cycle at the Musikverein Wien.

The Bruckner Orchester records prolifically including the complete Bruckner cycle for arte nova/SONY as well as of Symphonies No. 6 to 11, The Voyage and the opera Kepler as CD and DVD by Philip Glass. The orchestra has already gained an excellent reputation for its recordings of works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert, Siegfried Matthus, Franz Schmidt, Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Gustav Holst. During its long and venerable history, the orchestra has performed with such luminaries as Clemens Krauss, Hans Knappertsbusch, Sergiu Celibidache, Kurt Eichhorn, Vaclav Neumann, and Christoph von Dohnányi. In recent times, the distinguished roster has included Zubin Mehta, Serge Baudo, Horst Stein, Vladimir Fedosejew, Michael Gielen, Bernhard Klee, Steven Sloane, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, Michael Schønwandt and Franz Welser-Möst.

Starting with the 2017/18 season Markus Poschner assumed the position of Chief Conductor of the Bruckner Orchester Linz.
