Having won acclaim for his recent recordings of French repertoire, Robin Ticciati now turns to the music of Anton Bruckner. Ticciati is well suited to conducting Bruckner with an approach that is both ‘expansive and revelatory’ (The Guardian). Having already performed this work with the Bergen Philharmonic and Vienna Symphony Orchestras, Ticciati returned to Berlin to continue his recording series with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester. Bruckner broke new ground with his Sixth Symphony; its meandering harmonies, intricate rhythms and imaginative instrumentation are coupled with contrasting moods and a theme that moves satisfyingly from dark to light. Occasionally overshadowed by the more familiar Fifth and Seventh symphonies, the Sixth has many extraordinary moments, including the astonishing Scherzo. Notably this was the first work that the self-doubting composer did not seek to revise. Ticciati describes this symphony as ‘wild, daring and risky’, a perfect pairing for this engaging and charismatic conductor.

"The performance is transparent, expressive and, considering the composer, light-footed, with exhilarating, clean-edged brass and tightly rhythmic strings in the first movement."
The Guardian
"Ticciati also seems to have brought with him some of the qualities we used to hear in his performances with the SCO, an essential lightness, quickness of the response, clarity of texture, as well as a wide range of colour and timbre. All of which pay dividends here..."
BBC Radio 3
"The clarity of the performance makes this a real winner...I really enjoyed this performance; there is an air of spontaneity and enjoyment in the playing."

"On Linn this account from Ticciati and the DSO Berlin is compelling, too, and stands comparison with the finest recordings in the catalogue. It’s certainly a recording I will return to again and again."
MusicWeb International
"What is marvellous about Ticciati's conducting is that, excited by the music, he fully conveys that to his players...I enjoyed this Bruckner Sixth hugely."

"It's a performance that made me listen to the work with fresh ears, and prompted me to think that I had undervalued it in the past."
BBC Music Magazine
"Robin Ticciati's version hits the ground at a lick, the violin ostinato nice and clear. The first big tutti, 45 seconds in, is initially thrilling. The momentum doesn't let up, the second subject sounding like vintage Elgar. The playing and engineering are magnificent...”"
