"Although Yannick Nezet-Seguin stresses Romantic warmth of sonority and richness of mood, it's remarkable how textured the orchestral sound is. We don't just hear the leading melodic lines, but also the echoes, imitations and counter-melodies that often get pushed into the background. It's refreshing to hear Bruckner's orchestral writing brought to life on so many levels, captured faithfully by the recording." - BBC Music Magazine

"Nezet-Seguin shies away from weighty sound blocks or dense textures; rather, he inflects the musical line according to its expressive place in the overall scheme of things and isn't afraid to dip the tempo at crucial corners, so that we can better appreciate the view...The Scherzo is full of energy, though again it's most lyrical aspects come off best...The Andante is equally successful." - Gramophone
