Sublime & Deeply Moving 7th,
This review is from: Bruckner: Symphony No.7 (Audio CD)
Karajan made an outstanding stereo recording of Bruckner's 7th with EMI, but this digital version, which turned out to be Karajan's swan-song, is even more impressive for its depth and sublimity. Overall reading is very similar to the live recording by Barenboim/BPO (Bruckner - Symphony No 7), another fine 7th. Personally I think Karajan's account is greater than the overrated Wand version (Bruckner: Symphony No.7 (BPO/Wand)). If you are after beautifully sculpted yet emotionally profound 7th, get both Karajan's digital recording and Barenboim's Live recording.

What is your opinion about the 1986 studio version of Giulini with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra for DG?
I look forward to your reply.
