Pairing Bruckners Symphony No. 3 with Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture, this album kicks off Deutsche Grammophon’s new Bruckner Symphony cycle featuring Grammy-winning conductor Andris Nelsons and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. To highlight not only Wagner’s influence on Bruckner, but also the differences between the two composers, selected instrumental works by Wagner will be included in each release in the cycle.

Andris Nelsons is Music Director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and is the designated Gewandhauskapellmeister of the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, with the appointment commencing in the 2017/18 season. With these positions, and in leading a pioneering alliance between these two esteemed institutions, two times Grammy Award winning Nelsons is firmly underlined as one of the most renowned and innovative conductors on the international scene today.

Since 2016 Andris Nelsons is a Deutsche Grammophon exclusive artist. Now, with his new orchestra, Nelsons is embarking on a long-term journey exploring the sound world of Anton Bruckner’s iconic symphonies.
