 Lesser known work illuminated January 27, 2016 By Trevor Graham Cooper (Hong Kong, NT) See All My Reviews "One of Bruckner's lesser known and less played works appears in a new guise in the expansive account played here, helped by the generous acoustics of the recording venue. It is worth taking time to listen to 6 and add it to his more popular symphonies numbers 3,4,5,7,8 and 9." Report Abuse
 A very good Bruckner 6 March 27, 2015 By Gail M. (Goleta, CA) See All My Reviews "As with the other symphonies in Gerd Schaller's Bruckner series with the Philharmonie Festiva, the conducting and execution are as fine as any. There is some reverberation with this venue, but in this recording it is not so much as to obscure detail, and I didn't find that it detracted from the enjoyment of hearing this wonderful symphony performed so well. With Bruckner's Sixth there's no question of versions, and it is one of his most original." Report Abuse
