3.0 out of 5 stars disappointed, 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bruckner: Symphony No. 9 (Audio CD)
I'll keep my views short. I've been fascinated by the SPCM development of the finale over many years and I was really looking forward to this recording of their final revision. And what a let down! I'm no expert as to the playing of the BPO, it sounds ok and the symphony goes along nicely until the final part of the finale - a change from earlier versions, I believe from another reviewer, done so as not to break the momentum of the chorale. I had to stare at the CD player - I just couldn't believe it.
For me the best SPCM finale has got to be the 2007 revision, as played by the National Theater Orchestra of Mannheim, Friedemann Layer - Conductor. It's really good!
And why does Simon Rattle have to appear on the cover? Why not a picture of AB himself?

Certainly agree with your comparison with the 2007 reconstruction / Layer.

While I do agree that the artwork could not be called very inspired, why shouldn't there be a picture of Rattle on the cover? He is the principal artist after all. Ella Fitzgerald's Gershwin album carries her picture, not George and Ira's.
