5.0 out of 5 stars great musician, 1 May 2011
There are lots of modern Bruckner recordings of outstanding qualitiy. We Germans appreciate Gunther Wand for example. But what an experience to listen to this intense rendition of music performed under the historical circumstances of a dark era coming to a close, a vibrant city dying. The Furtwangler-bashing that had been fashionable for quite a time cannot undo the fact this man was a great musician, these CDs bear evidence of what art is able to overcome. This set of Furtwangler's Bruckner wartime conducting are not to be got in Germany (at least I could not spot it), but it is an absolute must in every serious collection. The delicate way of digital restoration has to be mentioned. I recommend it it poor English but from the bottom of my heart.
