Notes and Editorial Reviews

This two LP set not only chronicles a truly legendary performance – Christian Thielemann’s magnificent Bruckner 8 guest performance as conductor of the Dresden Staatskapelle – but also celebrates a return to classical music on vinyl. Until recently considered an outmoded technology, the rich sound is once again being lauded by audiophiles as unbeatable.

-----

REVIEW:

Thielemann favors a monumental approach to Bruckner. The sublime slow movement is quite glorious. Any lover of this great work will want to add this issue to their collection.
