The other Wagner symphony of Anton Bruckner and, I expect, his most popular work. A success with the public from the get-go and why not when it is so agreeable? So confident is Querstand of the uniformity of editions regarding No.7 (as with no.6 also) that they don't specify Haas, Nowak or anyone else (I turn to Mr Berky's website for confirmation this is the Haas edition). It is also one of the earliest in the HB series (2006) and the first to feature applause at the beginning. Concert performance, you see.

Twenty-six years separate the Leipzig concert from HB's first recording with the Dresden Staatskapelle for Denon. Going by timings, things haven't changed much. There's a not displeasing serenity, an easeful flow to the first movement, clocking in as it does at c.21 mins ( minus the applause, separately tracked). The adagio is also pretty broad, 24mins and no crashing cymbals, with only somnambulists like Celi' and Giulini matching or passing such a duration. (Celi's Munich 7th is the worst recording ever.) No, HB puts me in mind of HvK's first go at No.7, his admired EMI recording, one followed by better and best from Berlin and later Vienna for DG. I don't sense the interventionist HB in this concert; instead, he seems content to let the music play itself, the miracle arise of its own accord.

As with previous instalments in this cycle from the Gewandhaus, I found myself wanting more personality, on occasion, from the woodwinds. It got me thinking about that old canard, Bruckner making organ music transcribed for orchestra. Is the finger of an organist a soloist in its own right? Is the principle flute or oboe of an orchestra more individualistic, entitled to expressive license, than Joe Violin? One can't let tuttis and weight of sound do all the work.

This performance is certainly as good as others in this excellent series of the Bruckner symphonies. The performance is comparable to Haitink and Blomstedt's earlier recording on Denon. The sound quality is very clear and realistic on SACD.
Recommended to anyone who has a passion for Bruckner's symphonic music.
