Philippe Herreweghe conducts the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées
Bruckner's Mass No 2 in E minor, with Collegium Vocale Gent, and his Symphony No 2 in C minor, recorded in the magnificent setting of St Bavo's Cathedral Ghent.
In the fourth of this week's highlights from around Europe, the Collegium Vocale Gent and the period instrument Orchestre des Champs-Elysées are conducted by their founder Philippe Herreweghe. This all-Bruckner programme recorded at the Ghent Festival in September in the magnificent setting of St Bavo's Cathedral pairs the devotional, heartfelt and masterly Mass in E minor with the rarely heard Symphony No. 2 which set the template for Bruckner's later symphonies.
