4.0 out of 5 stars Good modern recording of a difficult symphony 27 Jan 2009
By Colin Fortune VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The chief benefit of this perfomance is that it has a cogency of approach, holding together the sometimes disperate invention with which Bruckner fills his long outer movements. The performance lasts only 63 minutes which is considerably shorter than the rival (much cheaper) Naxos recording under Georg Tintner [click on the link and scroll to my review of this for information about what the "1873 Version" actually means] Bruckner - Symphony No. 3 (1873 Original Version, ed. Nowak).

Nott's is a good recording of this rather sprawling symphony but there are occasions where I found the disc to be rather difficult to reproduce as it is recorded a quite a low level but with a large dynamic sound range. Turn up the music to hear the whispers of sound and then you are blasted from your seat by the next loud section. The Bamberg Symphony plays well but sometimes I feel it is a little "light" in texture when compared to the Hamburg Philharmonic under Simone Young Bruckner - Symphony No 3.

The present fashion is to turn to the original first concept versions of Bruckner's earlier symphonies and to claim that they form an unbroken link of symphonic grandeur right up to the mighty Fifth Symphony.

3.0 out of 5 stars A competent reading that seems to deliberately avoid Bruckner style 23 July 2012
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Music reviewing doesn't have to be comparative, but record buying usually is. Most buyers don't want multiple versions of Bruckner's Sym. #3 in its original edition (1873), so which to choose? to my knowledge, no one has recorded this edition with a major orchestra, but the regional German orchestras that I've heard - Frankfurt Radio SO under Inbal, Hamburg Phil. under Simone Young, and the Bamberger SO on the present recording - come through well. The Hamburg reading is quite remarkable, one of the best in Young's survey of first editions, and the Inbal is quite good. By comparison, I find Nott's conducting not at all Brucknerian. His paces everything quickly, with very little rubato, an avoidance of romantic expressiveness, and a general sense of the literal.

To go form the flat world he creates to the richness of the one Young creates is startling - it's hard to believe they are reading from the same score. The Bamberg players are not special; the strings are especially thin, while Young's Hamburg musicians throw themselves into the performance whole-heartedly. I notice that the SACD sound that Nott is given by Tudor regularly wins high praise. In two-channel stereo it doesn't make a strong impression. As highly as everything from this English conductor and his orchestra is praised by The Gramophone, the music-making that I hear is ordinary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly successful and appealing view of Bruckner's original score 18 Sep 2013
By Long-Time Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been quite impressed by this. Many recordings of the original, uncut version of Bruckner's 3rd are somewhat flawed: Tintner's by an undramatic, overly slow first movement that makes it almost an adagio; Inbal's otherwise excellent performance has dated sound quality, etc. Norrington is surprisingly good, and I like his reading, but many will feel his approach is too radical.

Nott gives us a reading with clear lines and structures that communicates the power of the work in a natural way, and the recording quality is excellent--open, fresh, and clear. Nott's version is kind of non-mainstream in that his 3rd is almost sunny at times, with a kind of grand energy and spontaneity that makes it very appealing and infectious. Bruckner's original version of 3rd emerges as a powerful, well-integrated whole that makes real dramatic sense, and you realize that this original 1873 version may be the best version, and that the 3rd has a much stronger final movement than many of his symphonies. A conductor like Nagano seems more conservative and less engaging than Nott; he focuses more on the stately majesty of the work, with less of Nott's spontaneous energy and drama, though he does slightly better at capturing the dark and mysterious aspects of the first movement. Still, I think Nott presents an outstanding reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Current favorite Surround SACD 14 Jun 2007
By Michael Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've only recently discovered the majesty of Bruckner and this recording does him proud. It's mysterious and sensitive but then absolutely GIGANTIC when called for. It's also a great example of SACD surround done well. But it's just as great on straight up stereo.

Mind blowing stuff if you have the inclination for large scale romanticism.
