Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This is Karajan's second recording of the symphony; it has tension, atmosphere, and that unmistakable authority which permeates his Bruckner conducting and which will be recognized, I am sure, by future generations of Bruckner interpreters."

-- Gramophone [9/1985]

"Karajan's opening has more beauty and a greater feeling of mystery than almost anyone else on CD. His slow movement is magnificent."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]
