Notes and Editorial Reviews

Wiener Philharmoniker/Hans Knappertsbusch
Live recording: Altes Festspielhaus, August 30, 1949

Few conductors were as adept as Hans Knappertsbusch at grasping the vast architectural dimensions of Bruckner’s symphonies. Together with the Vienna Philharmonic, he invests the Seventh with form and structure, his broad tempos also allowing the music space to breathe and develop.
