The London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Lawrence Renes, performs Bruckner's awe-inspiring Eighth Symphony.
It's become a cliche to call Bruckner's symphonies 'cathedrals in sound'. True, Bruckner's Eighth Symphony is the grandest and most expansive that even he ever composed; a vision constructed on a vast scale by a composer with a profound religious faith. But it's somehow both more universal, and more intimate than that.
