Joseph Keilberth has his devotees. Perhaps there is merit in his Wagner. Mystified as I am, I cannot understand the phenomenon. Indeed, upon listening to this Testament issue, I identify with the Roman authorities who, when faced with another pernicious & illicit cult, fed its adherents to the lions in order to preserve the commonweal.

The Berg Violin Concerto is not my area of (semi) specialty so others can comment on it. The Rosamunde Overture is straightforward enough but immaterial - who cares. Most people will purchase this disc for the Bruckner Ninth.

Ever so abjectly, Keiberth fails the Hotspur Principle: anyone can stand on the lip of the abyss and summon the spirits - but will they come?

This Bruckner Ninth is spasmodically dramatic and that's about it. Eschatology is not in play. Dread is non-existent. My interest was mildly stirred in the coda of the first movement where the Berlin Philharmonic blaze away in their inimitable fashion (and not before time too). The Scherzo and Finale are likewise ho-hum. One's enjoyment is further militated by the boxy sound.

If you want a Bruckner Ninth which is a one-way ticket to the Underworld, turn to Kna (Hans Knappertsbusch and the Berliner Philharmoniker: The Complete RIAS Recordings 1950-52).

We are all indebted to Testament which has exhumed so many treasures from Davy Jones' Locker. This ain't one of them.

Ripley's Believe it or Not: A Tepid Bruckner Ninth from the Berlin Philharmonic 23 Nov 2012
