5.0 out of 5 stars Spine-tingling, 28 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bruckner: Symphony No. 9 (Audio CD)
I have been listening to recordings of this symphony for more than fifty years, and to completed versions since the 1980s, but no previous account has thrilled me as much as this one. The orchestra is superb, and Rattle shapes the movements beautifully, building up relentlessly to the huge dissonant climaxes. The finale sounds as near to echt-Bruckner as one could wish, though nothing can be definitive as long as there is the possibility that some or all of the stolen pages may turn up. An added bonus is that it is all on one CD - a feat in itself! I have read the ten previous reviews, and it seems to me that there is a lot of nit-picking in the 3 and 4 star ones.

Nice review - helpful and it didn't take all day to read! I suppose a new item like this with no performing history (Finale) and with some of us not convinced that Rattle is yet steeped in a Brucknerian spirit - he may be one day but it isn't there yet, some seem to think - so nit-picking is inevitable if only to illustrate a "negative" remark. I will probably buy this disc and am happier to hear of different sleights so I don't raise my hopes unduly. Cheers.

How did EMI manage to get 82 minutes of music on a single CD?
