With outstanding performances of Symphonies 5 and 9, very good Symphonies 1,3,4,7 and 8, a goodish number 6 and a disappointing number 2 this set represents wonderful value for money. Anybody looking to get to know Bruckner symphonies should buy this set straight away at its give-away price and supplement it with Georg Tintner's superb Naxos disc of number 2 and Otto Klemperer's yet to be equalled number 6 on EMI. Burckner fanatics like me will already have bought it!

I will provide a general guide or overview of each symphony, and perhaps this will help someone who is either thinking of investing in just one Bruckner cycle, as a beginner; or for those who want to add to their other sets. However, please bear in mind that this set is so ridiculously cheap, that it would be impossible for it to be a wasted investment; even if you only liked one or two of the performances. On the whole, I must also add, that this cycle is `the' perfect cycle for anyone new to Bruckner; primarily because it appears to be free from the strange idiosyncrasies that blight other well established conductors interpretations. The sound is almost uniform throughout; it is mostly top drawer, with very little, or no congestion whatsoever during orchestral tuttis and climaxes.

The first symphony kicks off splendidly; the pacing is nigh on perfect. This, as an interpretation per se, is closer to Karajan's than say, Jochum. It is large scale, muscular; but pays homage to the fact that this is one of Bruckner's earlier symphonies, through the conductor's use of careful dynamics and wonderful articulation. It doesn't swagger as menacingly as Karajan's; it is a more controlled version. The Berlin Phil., are on top form here (as they were back in '81 under Karajan), and in my opinion, the interpretation is better than either Jochum's Staatskapelle version, Barenboim's earlier, Chicago version or Riccardo Chailly's. I'll give this 8 out of 10 overall.

The second came under great scrutiny upon initial release. It uses the Nowak edition, but it was seen as a rather plodding interpretation next to Solti (whom had just released a rather exciting version with the CSO).

this set is tremendous value for money and offers generally fine performances of every symphony in first class sound. the highlight of this set is barenboims etherial rendition of the 9th. It is as near to perfection as is possible, arguably the greatest performance ever committed to disc. those wishing to purchase a complete set need not hesitate in aquiring this excellent release.

i did not know that these recordings were live.
this does not detract from the excellent quality produced.
the symohonies are vast soundscapes i think one should live with them for a long time.
daniel barenboim is world class performer you cant get better value.
i highly recommend this box set.

The great detail of kmo "1612" (Liverpool UK)'s review makes another full review a little redundant, especially as I tend to agree with much of what he wrote. I came to Barenboim through du Pre's Elgar cello concerto, then followed a range of performances, e.g. his televised Beethoven Masterclasses, his complete piano concertos at the Festival Hall in 2009/2010 and so on.

Although I find some of his writing a little challenging, his podium performances seem to reach the heart of composers and his conducting always seems assured, certain and positive, drawing out the orchestra, encouraging them to play for him. His recent programmes for aspiring conductors on conducting with Pierre Boulez showed his style and approach clearly.

The booklet and CDs are helpfully clear about what many refer to as the "Bruckner Problem", i.e. (the Wirkungsgeschichte or discussion over authenticity since various version of them symphonies are available, some the result of collaboration and the Fourth is particularly complicated as it was revised many times between 1874-1892. For the Fourth Symphony, Barenboim performed the 1878/1880 version although in the earlier part of the twentieth century Gutman's 1888 version was used most often. (A good summary of this and other Bruckner symphony issues are on Wikipedia [Just Google or Wiki "Bruckner" or individual symphonies to see more information; reviews do not allows website addresses.

Format: Audio CD
This was my first venture into the world of Bruckner and from the 1st movement of the 1st Symphony I was hooked - this really is breathtakingly powerful music.
From the first listen it was easy to see how reviews of Bruckner Symphony cycles would draw a wide range of views: the music is obviously very open to interpretation, and "each to his own". However I can say that these Symphonies are all wonderfully performed (you wouldn't expect anything less from the BPO or Barenboim) and although I often try to avoid live recordings, this recording alone may have converted me.
I have since tried other recordings and interpretations, including Wand's live recordings of 4, 7 and 8 with the BPO, Karajan's complete cycle and Rattle's completion of the 9th, again with the BPO, and as fantastic as all of these recordings are I still have no complaints whatsoever about any of the performances in this collection.

As for the music itself:
Paul-John Ramos puts it excellently in his Classical.net Bruckner biography: "A Bruckner symphony does not refer to concrete images, nor does it undergo a familiar style of "development"; it simply exists as a vast, autonomous body of sound."
One striking feature is the way he masterly builds intensity by sending it at you in waves; he will build and build, then pull it back, only to unleash it again, wave after wave, until the intensity reaches such epic proportions it literally has no where else to go, and collapses under the weight of its own brilliance like a dying star.
For me the music conjures up images of huge, epic landscapes; each movement a journey over mountains, desserts and oceans.
