The final concert of Bernard Haitink's Berlin Philharmonic in May 2019, Bruckner "Symphony No. 7" has been released on a direct cut LP.
The microphone settings consist of five main microphones and two sub microphones, faithfully reproducing the atmosphere of the concert space. The final surface of the disc (LP2-B surface) is engraved with the signatures of Haitink and members of the Berliner Philharmonic. And the number of production is a limited edition of 1884 set, which is related to the year when the work was premiered.
Haitink, who celebrated his 90th birthday in March 2019, announced his retirement in June of the same year. Known as the leader in Bruckner's interpretation, Haitink subsequently played Bruckner's Symphony No. 7 at the Vienna Philharmonic and the Salzburg Festival, London's Proms, and finally the Lucerne Festival. Bruckner's No. 7 is also a concert and recording that Haitink has repeatedly featured. Haitink's No. 7 recordings include the Concertgebouw (1966, 1972, 1978) and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (2007).
*This recording is not planned to be released in other formats.
