3.0 out of 5 stars The previous review is a little misleading Nov. 2 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First of all, the recording accurately captures the acoustical environment in the Great Hall of the Concertgebouw. Andrew Cornall is presently one of Decca's finest producers and his studio recordings have never been as bad as the best Karajan got with DG in his digital years. Anyone who has seen a score of any version of Bruckner 9 knows that there is no Bass drum part. In fact, there is no Bass drum part in any of Bruckner's symphonies. Chailly deserves more credit for this recording. True, his performance does not eclipse Jochum, Walter, or possibly even Blomstedt on the same label, but he is the youngest of these conductors. The brass is not as dominant as the Karajan or Solti versions, but the acoustic counteracts the lack of darkness in the brass section. It is typical that people think there is only one approach to Bruckner. I think the Concertgebouw setting is very appropriate for this music and Chailly deserves more recognition.

Chailly never convinces from the beginning that this will be a good recording. Orchestra seems placed too far out, recording engineers need to hear Jochum's version hundred times before next such recording of monumental and serious symphony. This could be very well be called Brass symphony, but Chailly gives drained down version. On plus side the Concertgebouw strings are good. What is lacking after all with Chailly is that the tonal movement coming at you and then dissipating away is not well balanced. For that Guilini and Jochum captures the essence. For the first movement is misterioso, no mysterious sound emanates from Chailly-led Concertgebouw. Bass drum and tympani rolls are rare to hear, which you can promonently hear in Guilini, Jochum or Barenboims. Technical score 1 Performance 1 Overall 1 (all out of 5).

4.0 out of 5 stars Chailly Bruckner evolution July 3 2012
By Rodney W. Helt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Early in the compact disc onslaught, say early 80's, I purchased Chailly's Bruckner Berlin produced Symphony #7. I was frankly disappointed by that recording. As time has gone on, I believe that Mr. Chailly has continued to grow into the Bruckner aesthetic and produced correspondingly better Bruckner releases. The recording under review is a prime example of the positive evolution. The RCO plays beautifully and is recorded in a very life-like manner; the stereo sound stage is wide and deep with plenty of atmospherics. Ordinarily I would provide a five star rating to such a recording, but the competition to this release is legendary. Furtwangler, Celibidache, and Jochum come immediately to mind. This is still a very fine rendition and I enjoyed it completely--I think so will you. Recommended.
