Format: Audio CD
This recording has claim to be the Bruckner 9 of choice in any record collection. It is certainly the greatest of the three recordings that Karajan made in stereo (i.e. including the 150th Anniversary issue from the Vienna Philharmonic, which is exactly one second longer than this recording!).

Karajan fuses intense mystery and drama in what is one of the most clearly thought-out interpretations ever made. This Jesus-Christus Kirche recording is warmer and more natural sounding that his later remake with the BPO now only available as part of the complete set of symphonies on Bruckner: Complete Symphonies. Also it has a very special quality of complete involvement, such as one might expect from a live performance that is going really well.

Karajan is the master of the "long line." In the first movement, for example, there are tempo variations that fit exactly with the shape of the themes. And yet the whole movement has a wonderfully unified feeling to it. The Scherzo is fast and furious and blisteringly characterised: this is music that points towards the unsettled future and is the possibly the most "modern" thing that Bruckner ever wrote (the other example would have been the amazing Finale of this symphony has it been completed - and it's startling enough in any case as it is!) The Finale also makes its way towards a final "resting point" through a particularly grieving "Farewell to Life" section (some almost sobbing Wagner Tenor Tubas here) and a crushing major climax that ebbs away into a peaceful conclusion.

Format: Audio CD
There are many wonderful accounts of Bruckner's 9th Symphony by many great conductors and many great orchestras and those who have studied Bruckner's scores in great depth and some who have lived to a great age. I am recommending this account, recorded when Karajan was in his late 50s, with a great Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The work portrays the majesty and glory of God. The structure of the music with its building of immense climaxes is movingly given life. There is a glowing and blazing of brass and the woodwind occupy great reaches of space as the strings soar and weave. Silences are as important as sound in this great Jesus-Christus-Kirche moment. This is a recording to treasure, but you may also want another in which the 3rd movement is given more time in its final pages. Bruckner called this 3rd movement his 'farewell to life'. The last pages of the score need a little more length as Bruckner serenely relinquishes this life.

With several outstanding versions of this symphony in my collection, including the later Karajan Berlin performance on DG which is a powerful reading richly recorded.. and I wouldn't be without either... this earlier interpretation is incredibly moving and for me remains one of Karajan's very finest Berlin recording achievements. This is simply a recording to rank with the best interpretations on disc, including the final recordings of this symphony by Bruno Walter and Giulini. I can't think of a better reason for buying a recording...this is what records were meant for! A treasurable classic. Essential listening for anyone drawn to this work.

Bruckner presents a particular problem for his interpreters in that the conductor has to find a way of reconciling the traditional approach to development relying on compression and dynamism with this music's natural expansiveness and slow, monolithic unfolding. Bruckner is in many respects an unwitting revolutionary. (Much is made of his kinship with Beethoven and Wagner but I feel he is actually closer to Schubert, if anyone.) Like many whose work is not properly understood in their time, Bruckner found himself frequently derided and scorned by an obtuse musical establishment, though he did not, fortunately, lack for champions. Even now, when much of the battle with posterity has been won, his music still requires an approach that might to some seem counter-intuitive. Not that many conductors can really bring it off. In this performance, fortunately, Karajan does not just succeed, but positively excels.

You would have to be a little crazy not to snap up this, one of the best performances of the Ninth on disc, and at this price. I have heard many recordings; here is a perfect balance between the varied thematic development (the first ninety-six bars contain eight principal ideas alone) and an overall unity that can, in lesser hands, be fatally compromised. If I have one tiny caveat it is perhaps I would have liked a greater contrast in speed between the D Minor Scherzo and its F-Sharp Major Trio -the latter a wonderfully ghoulish musical apparition. However, I have heard too many performances where the conductor has done just that and more, only to reduce the spooky pizzicato opening to a Mogadon amble. Thoroughly recommended.

I think this is one of great Bruckner 9s, Karajan could be uneven in the symphonies, take the bludgeoning and battering account of the 1st movement of the 6th on DG, more maestro myth than maestoso.

As the Berlin horns rise up in the first movement of this 9th, the pacing sounds perfect. Karajan guilds Bruckner's fascinating structure carefully. It's a great performance even if some parts, the scherzo in particular sound a little over-rehearsed.

I'll keep my Bruno Walter, Blomstedt and maybe Giulini for some Viennese gilt.
