Another Triumph at 2017 Brucknertage St. Florian

With what is now the customary critical acclaim and a wild audience response, Rémy Ballot and the Altomonte Orchestra yet again proved to be the highlight of this year’s Brucknertage. Their breathtaking performance of Bruckner’s 5th Symphony in the capacity-filled Baslica St Florian was summed up by one reviewer as having truly achieved the motto of the 2017 festival: ‘Ein Griff nach den Sternen’ – a reach for the stars. This sensational concert was recorded for CD release on the Gramola label, for Ballot’s ongoing series of the complete Bruckner symphonies.
