Bruckner Symphony No. 8 in C minor (2010)

Bruckner

Orchestre de la Suisse Romande

Marek Janowski

With the Eight Symphony, Anton Bruckner completes a kind of sonorous apotheosis of the Romantic era. A summit resurrected by the haughty conducting of Marek Janowski at the head of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. Partner of this grandiose project which looks increasingly like a current integral, Espace 2 welcomes this release perpetuating the action of a public service specifically mandated to relay the cultural and musical richness of the French-speaking Switzerland. If the recording is –by definition- not central in the mission of a broadcaster, it nevertheless constitutes a kind of freezeframe sealing again the long relationship between the OSR and “its” radio station. I recall that the Radio Télévison Suisse and the great Swiss orchestra are contractually linked for more than 70 years and that they nourish together, day after day, new projects, new exchanges that allow the sonorous immediacy lived at the Victoria Hall of Geneva to be propagated throughout Switzerland, and worldwide through the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).

Orchestre de la Suisse Romande

Founded in 1918 by Ernest Ansermet, permanent conductor until 1967, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, with its 112 permanent musicians, ensures subscription concerts in Geneva and Lausanne, the City of Geneva symphony concerts, the annual fund-raising concert for the UN, as well as opera performances at the Grand Théâtre de Genève. Its reputation has been built up over the years thanks to its historic recordings and its interpretation of 20th-century French and Russian repertoire.

The orchestra's Music and Artistic Director will be Jonathan Nott from the 2016-2017 season. Its Principal Guest Conductor is Japanese maestro Kazuki Yamada.

Under the guidance of its founding conductor and subsequent music directors (Paul Kletzki 1967- 1970, Wolfgang Sawallisch 1970-1980, Horst Stein 1980-1985, Armin Jordan 1985-1997, Fabio Luisi 1997-2002, Pinchas Steinberg 2002-2005, Marek Janowski 2005-2012, Neeme Järvi, 2012-2015), the world-famous Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is an active contributor to the history of music through the discovery or support of leading contemporary composers. The pieces by Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud, Arthur Honegger, Frank Martin, Benjamin Britten, Heinz Holliger, Peter Eötvös, James MacMillan, Pascal Dusapin, Michael Jarrell or Richard Dubugnon were premiered in Geneva by the OSR. It is  one of its important mission: supporting the symphonic creation, and particularly the Swiss one. The OSR is a partner of Pro Helvetia until 2017 for the project “Oeuvres suisses”
