Today, Anton Bruckner, the son of a village schoolmaster, is recognised as one of the most important (albeit late-blooming) symphonists of the nineteenth century. During his lifetime, however, he was the subject of incomprehension and ridicule – that is, when critics and musicians paid him and his music any attention at all. Even in modern times, his music sometimes has been dismissed as too long-winded or uninteresting. Possibly his most popular symphony today, the Fourth is entitled the ‘Romantic’; the composer had in mind ‘chivalric romance’. This is Kertész’s only recording of a Bruckner symphony and makes its first international appearance on Decca CD. It forms part of a survey, on Eloquence, of Kertész’s treasured Decca discography.

‘the work is beautifully integrated. On its own account, this is a really fine interpretation of the symphony, splendidly realised by the London Symphony Orchestra.’ Gramophone
