5.0 out of 5 stars An urgent Bruckner 7, 3 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bruckner: Symphony No. 7 In E Major (Donald Runnicles/ BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra) (Hyperion: CDA67916) (Audio CD)
The playing and recording of this Bruckner 7 are exemplary. What distinguishes this interpretation from others I have known (e.g. Walter, Barenboim and Chailly) is that it is 10 minutes shorter, coming in at 60 minutes compared to the usual 70. Runnicles, perhaps due to his operatic background, brings a sense of drama and urgency to his orchestral conducting. Heard live, his Beethoven symphonies are wonderful (some enterprising label should record them). The end result here in Bruckner is a fresh and imposing account of a great symphony. In line with his dramatic approach he includes the cymbal clash in the slow movement to great effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars MOVING AND TECHNICALLY EXCELLENT, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bruckner: Symphony No. 7 In E Major (Donald Runnicles/ BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra) (Hyperion: CDA67916) (Audio CD)
Well played and well recorded. The work was given the treatment which it, as a very fine example of its kind, deserved. Hope the band and conductor now do James MacMillan's oboe concerto.

BRAVO
