More details

Renowned for his interpretations of Bruckner’s Symphonies, Günter Wand had a great affinity for Bruckner’s Fifth Symphony, as noted by the composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann. His first recording of the work became a great success, winning the German Record Prize in 1978. Wand’s London concerts with the BBC Symphony as Principal Guest Conductor acquired legendary status in his later years, rewarding him with the recognition that was so greatly deserved.

The ICA Classics Legacy series presents a collection of historic performances by some of the world’s greatest artists. These performances are released on DVD for the first time, incorporating rare archive footage that has been expertly and lovingly restored.

“Classic Wand - coherent, dramatic and emotive. For all the discipline and rigour in this reading, it is clear that he has a deep emotional attachment to every note.”
