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.

Format: Audio CD
I have already eulogised the Karajan Bruckner Eighth Symphony, made with and by the same forces the previous November; it is possibly the greatest recording of the greatest symphony in my collection but this last collaboration between Das Wunder Karajan and the orchestra that kept faith with him once his relationship with the BPO had broken down irretrievably is of the same standard and deserves to stand alongside it as a valedictory triumph.

You straight away notice the immediacy of the recorded sound and how it brings out the famous warmth and glow of the VPO. I have the older issue which is impressive enough but the remastering for the Karajan Gold label is by all accounts even better. As long as it is not edgy, digital sound was made for the combination of Karajan, the VPO and Bruckner; this is a demonstration disc and by no means the performance of a sick old man, being somewhat more propulsive and relaxed than the two previous Karajan studio recordings of this symphony, midway between the speeds of the fastest 1975 version and the slowest in 1971 - yet the differences in all three timings is marginal and certainly not noticeable; the hallmark of all three of Karajan's interpretation of this symphony is the grandeur and sonority of the performance; nobody does the climax of the first movement like Karajan.

Is the extra warmth of this recording perhaps the result of the stiff-backed old man letting go just a little of his famous iron control and simply letting the orchestra play music they love in the way they best know how? There is certainly no slackness in the beat or loose ensemble but you get the sense of the VPO breathing as one giant organism under the benevolent eye of a man who knew he was in the process of adding to his own already monumental legacy.

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!

This is an impressive recording of this popular work. It is Karajan's last ever recording, made with the VPO in early 1989 before his death later in the year. Following a break-up with the BPO towards the end of his career, he returned to his old, beloved orchestra, to make music together. It is as if they reconciled their earlier frictions before the conductor's departure to Berlin.

We are lucky to have this superlative recording. (His recording of Bruckner No.8 with the VPO, made about a half year earlier, is equally impressive.) The melodies are beautifully moulded and the tempi are completely natural (to my ear). The lyrical second movement, in particular, is lovingly played,

The orchestra's playing is beyond reproach. The homogeneous sound produced by this Bruckner specialist is simply marvellous. I have listened to many different versions in my time - Bohm (VPO), Karajan (BPO), Jochum, Haitink, Masur, Blomstedt, Suitner, Furtwangler, etc. But, the present disc is certainly at the top of my choice.

The recording is of demonstration quality. The sound is very clear and warm. I would recommend this disc unreservedly to lovers of Bruckner's music.
