Latvian conductor Andris Nelsons lets the light shine through the splendour of the cathedral in his Bruckner cycle with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, coupling the ‘Romantic’ Symphony with an ephemeral performance of the Prelude to Act I of Wagner’s Lohengrin. ‘His Bruckner is by no means impulsive — though there is tremendous momentum in both scherzos … But, like most great Brucknerians, Nelsons sees the slow movements as key to the composer’s symphonic mastery and faith.’ The Sunday Times
