A wonderful recording of a great symphony,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Symphony No. 2 (Barenboim, Chicago So) (Audio CD)
How wonderful to have a superb performance of this glorious symphony in modern stereo sound. Furtwängler's own live recording on Orfeo (not his DG studio recording) remains special despite the limited mono sound, but in this richly recorded and exciting performance Barenboim does the work full justice. If you don't know this symphony but like Bruckner and other late German romantic music, give it a try. You will be thrilled.
