Notes and Editorial Reviews


Probably the finest new performance I've heard for a long time. Young manages the rare feat of honoring all Bruckner's changes of gear and tempo while keeping a powerful forward flow. No doubt I shall listen to other accounts which are as fine, but for the moment I find that hard to believe.

– BBC Music Magazine

“This performance shares many of the qualities of earlier releases in the series, notably the committed playing of the Hamburg orchestra as well as Young's confident navigation of Bruckner's symphonic architecture. Tempi are well judged throughout, the Scherzo in particular enjoying an easy forward momentum without the stridency that affects some performances.
