5.0 out of 5 stars Awe-inspriring live performance!, 19 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bruckner: Symphony No. 8 (Audio CD)
Interestingly, timing of each movement of this awe-inspiring recording by Wand is almost idential to Karajan's 1957 EMI stereo recording, another powerful recording of the 8th played by BPO. But from the very bold opening Wand's determination to dig even deeper into soul of the music and to soar even higher to the transcendent is obvious. The only weakness in this performance may be the less emphatic ending which loses tention at the last moment, while Karajan manages to close the symphony with decisive force. The recording quality is amazingly vivid and present. They should have left ovation at the end. Must have been monumental event!
