Notes and Editorial Reviews

Böhm's performance of Bruckner's Third Symphony has always struck me as being memorable for the splendidly idiomatic reading of the third movement's Trio and the finale's sauntering, high-stepping polka. No version is as spellbindingly Austrian as Böhm's is at these points. The text is the 1889 revision. Böhm conducts it in a manner which is at once dogged and dramatically resilient; the VP0 playing is splendidly resolute, and there is a recording to match.

-- Gramophone [11/1982]

 Good Mixed Bag October 15, 2013 By j. merta (dunedin, FL) See All My Reviews "This performance is the Nowak 1889 edition. One of two authentic editions, the other being the Nowak 1877 edition. Very nice performance. Bohm has had a tendency to smooth out the sharp edges of Bruckner and this might not be to everyone's liking. We are also talking about the VPO that has Bruckner in its genes so that is a plus. Would have rated this higher if not for the fidelity which was was really no surprise considering the age of the recording." Report Abuse
