Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is widely considered one of the very best orchestras in the world. Time and time again, critics have lauded its unique sound. The extraordinary acoustics of The Concertgebouw and the exceptional musicians themselves play an important role in this respect. Another important contributing factor is the influence exerted on the orchestra by its chief conductors, of whom there have been only seven since 1988. Daniele Gatti was appointed chief conductor in September 2016
Orchestra: Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam. Conductor: Bernard Haitink. Audio CD (October 25, 1990). It is remarkable to me that considering his poor and declining health that HvK was able to produce, IMHO, two of his finest recordings - the Bruckner 7th and 8th Symphonies Bruckner: Symphony No. 8 with the VPO. Others have noted how little his interpretations changed over the years - once he felt he had come to grips with a score, he committed himself to that point of view and hardly ever waivered. Some find this recording too autumnal, but since much of it was written in response to the (imminent) death of Bruckner's adored Wagner, I think that mood is more than appropriate.
Bernard Haitink conducted Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony for the first time with the Concertgebouw Orchestra in 1959. The symphony was then recorded for the first and only time under his direction and with ‘his’ orchestra for Philips on LP in 1969. Haitink was to go on to perform the work with them more than twenty times in the years that followed. Under his direction, the Concertgebouw Orchestra was to establish a Bruckner tradition of international calibre. Recorded live at Concertgebouw Amsterdam on 18 and 29 February 2005. 01.
