This review is from: Bruckner: 9 Symphonies (Audio CD)
Nobody, but nobody, or anyone else, ever recorded better performances of 3, 5, 7, 8 or 9 than those in this box. The sound is a bit tight, but the playing and vision are sublime. There is not much wrong with 1,2,4 or 6 either, except in comparison with the exalted standards of the other five.
If you haven't heard Karajan in Bruckner, even more than in Strauss, and if you love this music, you have no excuse now this is so inexpensive. Do not be put off by the Karajan slayers. In the case of this set they are just plain wrong.
