Performances of at least three of Bruckner's symphonies always raise the same problem: which version is one to choose? In the case of the Third Symphony, at least three versions exist. The differences between them affect the musical material, the formal conception, the balance of the work's proportions and its sonorities. It is the first version of 1873 - neither published nor performed during Bruckner's lifetime - that Kent Nagano presents here.
This title was released for the first time in 2004.
