Abbado, interprète idéal de Bruckner. « L'approche par Abbado de la musique de Bruckner est douce et mélodieuse, parfois tendue et rapide, mais avec toujours une grande justesse. » : ainsi la Neue Zürcher Zeitung décrit-elle la prestation tant acclamée de Claudio Abbado à la tête de l'Orchestre du Festival de Lucerne. Leur interprétation de l'imposante Cinquième Symphonie d'un Bruckner en pleine ascension rend un parfait hommage à son génie. Même le Guardian insinue avec poésie que le compositeur lui-même aurait sans doute décerné à Claudio Abbado le titre « d'interprète idéal ».
This is Bruckner sunny side up, lending a molto expressivo bloom to string cantilenas in the opening movement and a con amore sparkle to the brass chorales. The orchestra, combining old friends and young talents, radiates a fabulously chamber musical quality. --Andrew Clark, Financial Times
The sound is excellent, the camerawork sensitive and technically first-rate. Abbado himself is invariabley the main focus of attention and he's wonderful to watch: theatrical posing and outsize gestures are evidently foreign to his nature… The players vary in age and appearance: no stiffening dress-code clamps down the unwarranted formality, just well-dressed men and women totally into the business of making great music. And boy, do they deliver! --- DVD Choice --Rob Cowan, Gramophone
Best DVD Peformance, Gramophone Awards,2012 --Gramophone

Si certains habitués ont disparu, on retrouve des pointures, le premier violon Kolja Blacher, l'altiste Wolfram Christ, fidèle entre les fidèles, et à la trompette l'impressionnant Reinhold Friedrich, qui triomphait déjà dans la Mer en 2003. On a tant dit sur cette formation qu'il n'est pas utile d'en rajouter.
Dans l'ensemble, quelque chose me retient d'aller de l'admiration et du respect à un complet enthousiasme de bout en bout, un peu comme dans le cas de certains des Beethoven du chef. Le finale garde longtemps un côté « grand exercice contrapuntique » qui ne me comble pas, même si son dernier tiers est soufflant par la cohésion, la beauté, le fini orchestral et -enfin, l'élan.Lire la suite ›
Très bien filmé, une prise de son remarquable, que du boheur

Listeners first encountering this 5th. symphony, if they were familiar with other Bruckner works, could be forgiven for thinking that the first movement in particular was constructed from discarded pieces of melody from earlier symphonies, strung together with no overall plan in mind. Certainly, the developmental agenda is not obvious. However, things seem to get more cogent as the movements progress, although there are still instances where beautiful little snippets of melody are left hanging without resolution.
Abbado does a pretty good job of hanging all this together - no mean feat for what must be a devilishly difficult conducting assignment. Just watch how he creates the little nuances in rubato and volume.
Gerhard Knapp in his review has doubts about the Lucerne orchestra being the ideal Bruckner orchestra, and I know what he means, although I think it's more the hall than the orchestra. If you listen during the brass chorales, you can tell the Lucerne hall, being narrow and relatively low-ceilinged, has a short decay time, thereby making it hard for the music to breathe in the Bruckner "cathedral of sound" manner. Compare this recording to, say, the Bruckner 7th, recorded by Welser-Most and the Cleveland Orchestra in Severance Hall. The difference in reverberation, and therefore fullness of sound, is quite marked.
That being said, the performance here is very good, as is the recording of it in this hall. The sound just comes across as a little clinical - you can't really bask in it. Video quality is excellent in bluray.
The only other video of this symphony that I have seen is by Wand, which is rendered obsolete by this version. On You Tube, you can see Barenboim's effort (looks and sounds pretty good) together with the 4,6,7,8 & 9, all with the Berlin RSO, and purported to be released sometime henceforth on bluray. These were apparently all performed and recorded within a one week period in Berlin. I frankly don't know how a conductor or orchestra can absorb and perform all this music optimally in such a short period. But the release could be a best-seller if it is priced competitively as a bluray set. They can probably squeeze the whole thing onto two discs.
So, if you like Bruckner 5, you'll love this disc. If you're new to it, try it and be prepared to invest a little time getting to know it. This is not a piece to absorb in one sitting.
While Abbado's interpretation is certainly not barnstorming, neither is it limp wristed. Although utilizing a large orchestra Abbado approaches many aspects of this work more as a piece of chamber music-thus the subtleties of the wind and brass writing are gloriously displayed. His hand picked orchestra plays flawlessly and the whole symphony is expertly paced. While Gunther Wand's DVD version is also noteworthy , its filming is somewhat dated and the performance is less coherent than Abbado's.
Listening and watching on a decent home theater system I found the warm and clear sound perfectly acceptable. The performance is additionally well filmed. Highly recommended.
Abbado's recording has received much praise elsewhere, and I gladly agree that his is a very special reading, full of warmth and sensitivity to the composer's mood swings. I do not quite concur with Ian Giles regarding the problems with the recording's dynamic range he experienced: I listened (with headphones) to both soundtracks and, yes, the dynamic range is wide and some piano passages are low in volume indeed, but all in all the dynamics are not out of line for me. The video is very good, so is the audio, up to today's very best standards (see C Major!). As to the interpretation, I don't find the Lucerne Festival Orchestra ideally suited to Bruckner's idiom and his sonorities. At times I sensed some tentativeness in ensemble or intonation, too subtle to pinpoint exactly. Perhaps this is due to Abbado's rather genteel approach to the score which is not quite apparent in the powerful first movement and the beautifully melodic adagio, but in the scherzo where I would wish for a more ferocious delivery (and, as the composer wants, no slowing down in the trio) and in the finale which is not quite overwhelming or, if you like, apocalyptic enough for my taste. All this is admittedly a very subjective response to what must be considered a great performance overall. You may disagree with my quibbles and I'll be happy to hear from you.
Since then, I’ve heard many performances, and now appreciate this work in more modest garb. However, Abbado’s nuanced and refined reading stands alone as the most transparent and lyric interpretation I’ve heard. The Lucerne Festival Orchestra has a uniquely international sound: one cannot really say the brass is German or the winds French. Each solo is imparted with a polished sheen, expressive, yet fastidious. Abbado lets the musical events unfold on their own with a reverence for the score, eschewing grandstand plays. I had to forget the cathedral of the past.
I still love to turn up the volume on my Jochum and recall the thrill I experienced over forty years ago, but I would place this exquisite performance above the rest.
