5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime & Deeply Moving 7th 21 Nov 2008
By Scriabinmahler TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Karajan made an outstanding stereo recording of Bruckner's 7th with EMI, but this digital version, which turned out to be Karajan's swan-song, is even more impressive for its depth and sublimity. Overall reading is very similar to the live recording by Barenboim/BPO (Bruckner - Symphony No 7), another fine 7th. Personally I think Karajan's account is greater than the overrated Wand version (Bruckner: Symphony No.7 (BPO/Wand)). If you are after beautifully sculpted yet emotionally profound 7th, get both Karajan's digital recording and Barenboim's Live recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific recording, terrific performance! 18 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Typical Karajan, measured and powerful! Bought this because a friend had died and his instructions for his funeral asked that the second movement of this be played as the coffin was being brought into the Church! I knew some of the Bruckner symphonies, but not this one! Really love it now though!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of Karajan & Of Bruckner's Seventh 18 Jan 2007
By Philoctetes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is the recording that turned me, irrevocably, onto Bruckner. Certainly the benchmark, all others being of curiosity value, so as to hear other methods and the inevitable pitfalls. Gloriously played, sublimely humane, even more vital to your collection than the much-praised Vienna Eighth. Karajan's final recording: a perfect ending. Look no further, seriously.

Update 2013: well, today I might qualify the "all others being of curiosity value", but the truth as I understand it remains that this is the greatest Bruckner 7th on record and one of Karajan's essential recordings. The fervour of the performance is unarguable.
