Shop No Further For this Symphony,
This review is from: Bruckner: Symphony No 4 (Audio CD)
Even more pelucid than the last Böhm recording. More voluptuous than Karajan by far, and way, way more emotion. The perfect performance and recording of what all scholars seem to now agree was THE version that Bruckner himself preferred. This must be EXACTLY how Bruckner heard his music, right down to the inner voices and powerful, growling lower brass. Sweeps the field, including all recordings by Furtwangler, Barenboim, Walter, Haitink, Böhm, Jochum (a different version, though, so listen to this, too, on DG), Ormandy, Solti... JUST GET IT.
