With outstanding performances of Symphonies 5 and 9, very good Symphonies 1,3,4,7 and 8, a goodish number 6 and a disappointing number 2 this set represents wonderful value for money. Anybody looking to get to know Bruckner symphonies should buy this set straight away at its give-away price and supplement it with Georg Tintner's superb Naxos disc of number 2 and Otto Klemperer's yet to be equalled number 6 on EMI. Burckner fanatics like me will already have bought it!

this set is tremendous value for money and offers generally fine performances of every symphony in first class sound. the highlight of this set is barenboims etherial rendition of the 9th. It is as near to perfection as is possible, arguably the greatest performance ever committed to disc. those wishing to purchase a complete set need not hesitate in aquiring this excellent release.

The great detail of kmo "1612" (Liverpool UK)'s review makes another full review a little redundant, especially as I tend to agree with much of what he wrote. I came to Barenboim through du Pre's Elgar cello concerto, then followed a range of performances, e.g. his televised Beethoven Masterclasses, his complete piano concertos at the Festival Hall in 2009/2010 and so on.

Although I find some of his writing a little challenging, his podium performances seem to reach the heart of composers and his conducting always seems assured, certain and positive, drawing out the orchestra, encouraging them to play for him. His recent programmes for aspiring conductors on conducting with Pierre Boulez showed his style and approach clearly.

The booklet and CDs are helpfully clear about what many refer to as the "Bruckner Problem", i.e. (the Wirkungsgeschichte or discussion over authenticity since various version of them symphonies are available, some the result of collaboration and the Fourth is particularly complicated as it was revised many times between 1874-1892. For the Fourth Symphony, Barenboim performed the 1878/1880 version although in the earlier part of the twentieth century Gutman's 1888 version was used most often. (A good summary of this and other Bruckner symphony issues are on Wikipedia [Just Google or Wiki "Bruckner" or individual symphonies to see more information; reviews do not allows website addresses.

These performances were recorded between 1990 and 1997. The sleeves advertise that all are live performances except symphonies four and seven, but the audience's coughing in the fourth's andante indicates that the only studio performance is the seventh. Rather than expand on each symphony in turn, I think in this instance a few general notes for the potential purchaser would be better.

First, which versions has Barenboim chosen? The first is the original Linz version; the second is the revised 1877 version. Personally, Barenboim makes a mistake by using the 1877 version of the third symphony, whose fourth movement is more laboured than the symphony's final and more usually-recorded version. The final version of the fourth symphony brings us back to the standard repertoire. In the seventh, Barenboim includes the arguable cymbals and triangle at the climax of the adagio. And in the eighth symphony, Barenboim chooses the 1939 Hass edition.

What about performance? By and large Barenboim is respectful, taking time where it needs to be taken, giving breath to the themes. In places his interpretation is superlative, such as the re-appearance of the trumpet ostinato in the first movement of the second symphony, and later the finale's Beethovenian first subject's development running headlong into it, a fruitful transformation that is brought off fantastically. I would also like to highlight his and the Berlin Philharmonic's rendition of the ninth, which - for a live recording - is a stupendous performance, perfectly paced: I wish I had been there! The warm sound glows, the brass are superb, and careful consideration is given to the orchestration underlying the main themes. It's not perfect, but is mightily impressive all the same.

For me this box set of complete Bruckner Symphonies by Daniel Barenboim and the Berlin Philharmonic, recorded during the 1990's for Teldec/Warner Classics, is just stunning. I have tried other recordings such as the Georg Tintner/RSNO NAXOS box set but was disappointed by these because of the lack of power in the strings. Of course there is no such problem with the Berlin Philharmonic with their powerful rich sweeping strings that can match the brass in the big Tutti sections of Bruckner's epic Symphonies. If anyone can do justice to these Symphonies it's the Berlin Phil and I would also have to say that Barenboim's interpretations are spot on.

They do a wonderful recording of the 7th Symphony with Barenboim pacing it perfectly especially in the first movement that many other conductors rush through. The richness and quality of the string playing throughout, but particularly in the second movement, is a delight to hear with sensitive woodwinds. The dramatic and emotional ending is also a delight to hear with the brass strong but not over blowing, as is the case with some British orchestras.

Barenboim and the Berlin Philharmonic also deliver fine performances of Bruckner's 4th (Romantic) 9th,5th,6th and 8th Symphonies in this excellent box set.
