November, 2021: Symphony No. 7 / Bernard Haitink / European Youth Orchestra
With news of the death of conductor, Bernard Haitink, I sent readers of this newsletter a link to my June, 2017 Download of the Month containing Haitink's performance of the Bruckner Symphony No. 8 with the European Community Youth Orchestra. That performance produced quite a stir among listeners for its extraordinary playing and interpretation.
This month, I will provide one more example. Here is a performance of Bruckner's Symphony No. 7 as presented by Bernard Haitink and the European Youth Orchestra in Amsterdam on August 29th, 2016.
