Notes and Editorial Reviews

Eugen Jochum’s performances are urgent, passionate, volatile – Bruckner wrestling with his demons, triumphantly in the Eighth Symphony, tragically in the Ninth...and while Jochum takes a more fluid view of the underlying Brucknerian pulse, he isn’t as extreme as Furtwängler... Jochum’s Eighth and Ninth symphonies defy comparison – these are very personal visions, and worth hearing as such. No other stereo-age recording brings out the life-death struggle in the unfinished Ninth so vividly and movingly. The imposing 1976 Berlin Philharmonic/Karajan Ninth can seem cold after Jochum. Architecture is important, but let’s not forget there’s human drama here too.

Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 3 (out of 5)
