On Saturday 4 February, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir performed an all-Bruckner concert at Royal Festival Hall under conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin with soloists Christine Brewer, Mihoko Fujimura, Toby Spence and Franz-Josef Selig. The programme was Bruckner’s Christus factus est, Symphony No. 9 and Te Deum.
Reviewed by Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph:
To hear these three pieces in one uninterrupted 90-minute sweep was a tremendous experience. It was a tremendous feat on the part of the performers, too, especially Nezet-Seguin … I’d always thought Nezet-Seguin was too driven and exuberant a personality to be a natural Bruckner conductor, but this concert showed I was completely wrong on that score. The opening often has a stony grandeur, but by moulding its final phrase Nezet-Seguin gave the whole utterance a human intimacy.
