Take 130 young musicians, one French star conductor, Anton Bruckner's most extensive symphony and the uniquely inspiring atmosphere of the Priory Basilica St. Florian: the mystical worlds created by the Upper Austrian Youth Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Remy Ballot on the occasion of the Bruckner Festival in 2014 with the 8th Symphony, led renowned critics to expressions such as «Suddenly, the gates of paradise stood gaping wide open, the eternal transfiguration - promised for afterlife - appeared as though in striking distance.» or «Out of the silence a wonderful visionary chorale on high strings and winds descends as though from heaven: the youth orchestra played it as though they were angels; it was - as the saying goes - 'a moment to die for.'» This extraordinary performance is being released now on multi-channel hybrid SACD - explicitly without warranty on reincarnation!

At the age of 16, he caught the eye of orchestra conductor Sergiu Celibidache, and simultaneously studied orchestra conducting with the famous maestro in Paris and in Munich.
