5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning recording, 6 Nov 2011
This review is from: Anton Bruckner: Symphonie No. 8 (MP3 Download)
I originally bought the Karajan recording of this work, and was disappointed with the slow pace of the third movement. Wand however is beautifully paced throughout, and combines this with stunning colours drawn from the orchestra. He makes Bruckner's grand architecture beautifully clear with deceptive ease, making it approachable for the first-time listener, as well as highlighting details which make it pleasurable to one returning to it again and again.
I am delighted with every aspect of this recording-the finale in particular is breathtaking. It is well worth buying to add to an existing collection and particularly if is a first of this apocalyptic work.
