Bruckner: Mass No. 3 in F minor
Lenneke Ruiten (soprano), Iris Vermillion (mezzo), Shawn Mathey (tenor), Franz Josef Selig (bass-baritone)
Swiss Romande Orchestra, Rundfunkchor Berlin, Marek Janowski
In 2008 PentaTone started the recording of a complete Bruckner Symphonies cycle with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande conducted by Marek Janowski. All of them have now been recorded and most of them have been releases (with the exception of Symphonies Nrs. 2 and 4 which will be released later this year).
The cycle received a lot of critical acclaim. Gramophone reviewer Edward Seckerson mentioned “There’s more than a touch of the great Euchen Jochum in Janowski’s approach”. The current release is complementary to the Symphonies cycle and features the renowned Rundfunkchor Berlin and an excellent cast of soloists. Recorded in superior surround sound in the fine acoustics of Victoria Hall Geneva, makes this recording a must buy for Bruckner aficionados. There is currently no version on SA-CD available in the market.
