A Quasi Mystical Experience !

This review is from: Bruckner: Symphony No.8 (Audio CD)
This was one of Karajan's last recordings and one of the very best he made in his illustrious career. Whatever one might think of the uneveness of quality in Karajan's digital era, gems like this recording leave a indelibable impression. The refined poise, power and delicacy of the Vienna Philharmonic allied to Karajan's strong sense of direction and purpose throughout create an intensely spiritual reading.
This is one of the most unforgettable Bruckner interpretations ever put on disc. It can not recommended highly enough.
