Customer Review

on 27 July 2014
It actually helps to have heard another version of the symphony first before you own this, since the puposefully barbarous tone of the brass at times, and the emphasis on Bruckner's frequent discord and semi-tonality takes some while getting fully used to, but this recording is among the finest: roiling, cosmic, tonally spacious and generally sublime. The lusciousness of the heaving first movement and the Adagio are genuinely time-suspending, and whether you agree with this revision of the work above another version is of little consequence to a performance that melts your brain as if you're drowning in Irish Cream while pinning you against a wall. It's unlikely to convert anyone who hasn't already fallen for this ineffable composer, but in my experience there's people who are clearly beyond help.
