 probably the first choice March 9, 2017 By K. BAKER (HEBER CITY, UT) See All My Reviews "I have more than a dozen sets of the complete Bruckner symphonies, and this is a strong contender for the top choice, at least for me. Clearly, there is personal link between you and a performance which makes review recommendations by somebody else only marginally useful. What appeals to a reviewer may or may not appeal to you, but odds are that reviewer advice is a little better than nothing so here goes. Barenboim has three complete sets of the Bruckner Symphonies. My preferences are: von Karajan Skrowaczewski are the worst. I could live without them, but for the rest, I keep them. To give you some idea of just how puzzling Bruckner is, here, Barenboim does #8 in 77 minutes. Celibidache takes 107 minutes and I wouldn't be without ether one. So here is my buying advice. If you already have a set of the Bruckner Symphonies. You need more. If you just approaching Bruckner, the price of some sets of all is so good that it is foolish to buy anything but a full set. What to buy? Go by price. For what its worth, my top choices are: Young, or Tintner, or Jochum, or this Barenboim. Setting performance aside, this Barenboim has the edge by an edge for the best sound." Report Abuse
