 Capturing the Depths of Bruckner's Spirituality January 14, 2017 By Joseph F. (Stamford, CT) See All My Reviews "Some will find this interpretation of Bruckner's 9th to be too slow. It is not fast paced that's for sure. I love the spaciousness of this recording. Both the spaciousness of the interpretation and the airy spaciousness of St. Florian's. It is a toweringly great performance, and although I have a few quibbles, I don't think I could now live without it. It is a 21st Century recording that channels the conducting style of a much earlier age. The conductor is himself, I think, an "old soul"." Report Abuse
 Surround Sound from St Florian, Austria March 11, 2016 By John Proffitt (Houston, TX) See All My Reviews "This recording was made in public performance in the Basilica Church of St Florian, Austria, in summer 2015, during the Brucknertage summer music festival. It is the first such "on location" recording of Symphony 9 in 5.0 channel, high resolution, surround sound in the composer's home church and spiritual home. This is the second such SACD surround recording (Symphony 8 was released in 2014 and Symphony 6 forthcoming in 2016) in the projected complete Bruckner Symphony Cycle from the Gramola label. Technical note: the 24/96k high-resolution recording was made with five Neumann microphones, each of which fed a single channel of the 5.0 recording directly with no equalization, limiting or further mixing, to capture the unique -- and magnificent -- acoustic of St Florian."
