Bruckner: Symphony No. 2 (Profil)

A thoroughly commendable and consistent account of the most popular version of Bruckner’s Second Symphony [RMo]

Roth makes an outstanding case for the original 1874 version of Bruckner’s Fourth [MC]

Haitink displays remarkable consistency in this grand and spacious account [RMo]

Neeme Järvi (conductor) Great Maestros (Estonian Record Productions)

An oddly imbalanced double bill, with an enjoyable Brahms Requiem and some unbearably rushed Bruckner [RMo]

Bruckner: Symphony No 7 (Warner Classics)

A grand, majestic performance catching all the requisite light and shade of Bruckner’s most popular and accessible symphony [RMo]

Bruckner: Symphony No. 8 (Archipel)

A faintly disguised incarnation of Karajan’s classic first studio recording with the BPO, which has long been available on other labels in somewhat superior sound [RMo]

Bruckner: Symphony No.2 (Capriccio)

Beautifully balanced between thrilling tension and lyricism despite – or because of? – the pervasively propulsive speeds [RMo]

Bruckner: Symphony No.8 (Alpha)

An oddly bland and inconsistent account which in no sense challenges established favourite recordings [RMo]

Bruckner sym3 09026639332

Bruckner: Symphony No. 3 (RCA)

(Déjà Review) Distinction and commitment, sonorous and urgently compelling [TB]

Bruckner: Symphony No. 6, Te Deum (Testament)

An alpha performance of the Te Deum, but an omega one of the symphony [LD]
