5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime! 27 Dec 2007
By Scriabinmahler TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is an outstanding recording of 7th. Barenboim's strength is the way he generates maximum degree of depth and intensity without resorting to distortion and exaggeration. He lets music flow as naturally as possible and speak for itself. Every movement thoughtfully paced, sensitively crafted, every climax as overwhelming as possible. This is no doubt one of the most impressive and sublime accounts of 7th in decades.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but by no means great 25 July 2008
By DMH TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I must beg to differ from the previous reviewer. While I enjoyed this performance and the recording is a good one, Barenboim is apt to slow down and speed up rather too much (although I would admit his approach to speed changes is more subtle than some other conductors). What is lacking is a clear sense of the musical argument (sometimes called "line") running through this work. Barenboim is more concerned with dwelling by the wayside to smell the flowers or whipping up the tempo into the big climaxes.

5.0 out of 5 stars a perfectly fine performance 15 May 2013
By Ignis - Published on Amazon.com

It strikes me that the 7th is one of the easier of Bruckner's symphonies to get right (unlike, say, the 6th), so choosing one performance over another comes down to personal preference. While there are recordings that may generate a little more excitement, this one is perfectly fine. I seriously doubt you'd be disappointed with it.

It's an expansive performance, as Barenboim's typically tend towards, solidly played by the BPO with a big, expansive sound.

Starts off a little cool, perhaps, before picking up at the 3rd theme group, then it's smooth sailing from there. The adagio is really quite nicely done, and the scherzo and finale exhibit the same care and attention to detail.
