This is a stunning bargain if you are wondering whether you are interested in the music of this great composer. My introduction to Bruckner on record was via Jochum's DG set on vinyl and I have loved both ever since. This EMI set produces the same interpretations with a different orchestra and the only thing that I notice that sets them apart is a slight hint of "routine" . But this might just be that the recording by EMI sounds a little more laid back than that by DG. Whatever - unless we are going to get into the realms of the different versions of these symphonies, this set will give pleasure to anyone who has around an hour or more at any one moment to listen to a piece of orchestral music. In particular the early symphonies, which are sometimes felt to be less important than the later ones, sound beautiful. I was lucky enough to hear this orchestra live during the period that these recordings were made and these CDs capture their rich and mellow sound. For those of you who, like me, explore multiple recorded versions, I wouldn't be without this one. Enjoy.

This is an excellent reading of Bruckners nine symphonies. The price is probably the most appealing factor here, but when one looks at the combination of Jochum and the Dreseden Staatskappelle, it is clear this is no cheap and cheerful set, but as vibrant and involving an interpretation as one would expect from as leading a Bruckner authority as Jochum. This set is at least as good as the much more expensive Berlin Phil DG set, which Jochum recorded some years earlier. If you dont have any Bruckner CDs this is the place to start, and even if you do, Jochums insights (he was President of the International Bruckner Society) make it an absorbing listen.

Eugen Jochum's approach to Bruckner is an important part of the performance history of the symphonies. It is ecstatic and poetically romantic when compared with the likes of Karajan or Barenboim. At the present Amazon price this EMI set represents almost unbelievable value and though the sound is a little muddly when compared with the earlier DGG performances it is still worth buying. If you have a tone control on your hi-fi you will, oddly, need to cut the treble on the rather harsh recording of number 6. Otherwise the sound is a little bass-heavy. My personal preference would be for the DGG set, which is a little more expensive but has a wonderful Symphony 5 and a highly original interpretation of number 9. Both EMI and DGG sets have contraversially quick and unsettled performances of Symphony 8 in the Nowak edition of the 1890 version. There is, unfortunately, at present no recommendable bargain version of the Haas Edition of Symphony 8 which conflates the 1890 text with some sections of the 1887 version. For the (in my opinion less successful) 1887 (first) version the outright winner is Tintner on Naxos. Jocum's 1948 Hamburg version of the Haas edition of Number 8 is available in surprisingly good mono sound on DGG Originals in a mid-price double album. This latter is one of the best "historical" performances available.

There are no minor Bruckner symphonies. All of them are masterpieces that stand on more or less equal footing in terms of weight and expression. Listener's will have their favourites, but they are likely to change over time, in a manner depending on what they have been listening to more recently. Bruckner's musical language is austere and deceptively simple taking, as he does, small chunks of power and beauty and assembling them into progressively larger architectural wholes of power and beauty. And, despite the significant length of all of the works, there is never any padding or cluttering with excessive ornament. The symphonies draw on a limited pallette of moods, but what moods there are are always sublime. There is power but never anger. Nobility but never arrogance. And grace never descends to mere prettiness. In these works form is everything, and within form dynamics, as they unfold through an ineffable and enerring dialectical logic, that never puts a foot out of place. At no point in any Bruckner symphony is there a supicion of excess, or missed or botched opportunities. At no point does the listener find himself wondering how he got where he is. Nor is there any real doubt about where he is heading. There are seldom any big tunes, melody never really intrudes into the flow of musical logic. Many or most movements however, are constructed around some chord sequence, that will often have the paradoxical quality of sounding highly original, and distinctive of the composer and yet, at the same time, sounding as though they have been drawn from the deepest well of universal music. So, even as we know we are hearing them for the first time, we somehow feel we have known them forever.Read more ›

This purchase proved to be highly satisfying. Eugen Jochum's interpretations are very revealing and the music springs to life off the page in a manner so rarely heard. The Staatskapelle Dresden rise superbly to the occasion, providing generally excellent ensemble, fine rich sound and well graded dynamics. Recording quality is very good, and this CD set provides all that Brucknerians could wish for - at a truly astonishing bargain price.

Buy with absolute confidence, A. Howard Thomas, Sheffield UK.
