Barenboim brings a real sense of direction to the musical argument. The narrative can be seen moving inexorably towards a thrilling and purposeful coda. The Berlin Staatskapelle plays superbly throughout, and special mention should be made of the absolutely marvelous solo horn playing of Patricia Gerstenberger.

Barenboim concentrates on the big picture, contouring and terracing the musical edifice rather than commenting on detail or ratcheting up the crescendos. In short, the least familiar of Bruckner’s mature symphonies is allowed to speak for itself, and the result is unexpectedly powerful. – Financial Times Read less
