There is a slight glitch in the first movement where the Tenor Horn reappears in the extended development section: the player simply misses his entry and then comes in late, and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra make a seamless web around him so that if you had never heard the piece before you would never have been aware of the mistake. This is great orchestral playing and the recording seems to have been patched either from rehearsal material or special sessions - given the error above I suspect the former - as there is no audience applause at the end. I cannot imagine that after such a great performance that the audience would not have erupted with glee!

If you have the DGG boxed set of the symphonies you will know that the 7th is spoiled by rather hard recording of the strings. The first movement also, in comparison with this performance, is a little quicker and a little less heavy. No matter. This live performance is one to buy as a front runner single disc version in its own right. For me it is a valuable pendant to the complete set, delivering an even more eerie Second Movement and Scherzo than the studio recording and an "amourous" Nachtmusik II at just the right tempo. The Rondo-Finale is quickish but by no means as fast as versions by Bernstein or Solti.

Kubelik's view of the symphony could be called the "mercurial-mystical" approach. It is full of rushing whispers of sound in the Nachtmusik sections and emerges into brilliant daylight in the last movement in a most satisfying way. It is a quite different conception to the almost miraculously conceived live Tennstedt recording on BBC Legends
