5.0 out of 5 stars SYMPHONY NO. "00" AND THE "VOLKSFEST" Sept. 15 2000
Format:Audio CD
PERFORMANCE: 9 out of 10.
RECORDING: 9 out of 10.
Fortunately, there is only one version of this symphony. It is full of Beethovenian, Mozartian, Mendelssohnian and Schumannesque touches. The scherzo is the most original of the movements. Some conductors tried to inflate this symphony to sound like the others. Wisely, Tintner steers clear of that temptation. The 1st Symphony is quantum leap above this and was only written a couple of years later. Nevertheless, it is quite a pleasant piece. The edition is by Nowak. (The total time of this performance is shorter than those of other conductors. This is simply because Tintner did not repeat the expositions in the outer movements, not because he adopted any controversial tempos.)
This is the 1878 version of the finale (ed. Nowak). One can play this after the first three movements of the "1878-80" version which Tintner recorded for this series. It's a shortened and simplified reworking of the original finale of 1874. Like the 1874 finale, the "Volkfest" lacks the slow c minor section (repeated in different keys) that Bruckner added to the "1878-80" version. It's an interesting piece, but I could never prefer it over the "1878-80" finale.
This CD lives up to the high standards that Dr. Tintner and Naxos have set. I heartily recommend the entire series to all those who are unfamiliar with the composer and to comparative "Brucknerheads".

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, early Bruckner Sept. 8 2000
Format:Audio CD
Get this CD! You are unlikely to find a public performance of Bruckner's "00", and there are not many recordings either. It is lovely music, and very interesting if you know the later Bruckner symphonies. That Tintner, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and Naxos, can produce a good recording goes without saying.
Symphony "00" is an exercise during Bruckner's studies. It is clearly not mature Bruckner. Tintner, in the acompanying booklet, compares it to Schumann and Mendelsohn. As a Scandinavian, I am even reminded of Grieg sometimes (his symphony, also an early work, is contemporary with Bruckners "00"), but he was also influenced by Mendelsohn, so Tintner is, of course, right. Then, in the middle of it all, you can hear the coming Bruckner (ending of first movement, scherzo). The juxtaposition of Mendelsohn and Bruckner, and the glimpse of Bruckner's development as a composer, is fascinating! It seems that he went through both a Mendelsohn period and a Wagner period, with more and more of himself, before he became the "real" Bruckner - nobody else could have written his 9th!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden Gem June 6 2000
Format:Audio CD
Once again Georg Tintner has made a convincing case for a neglected Bruckner work. Earlier, it was the original version of the third. This time it is Bruckner's first symphony--the study symphony. Other versions never ask to be listened to a second time, but this one does. It is unusual for Bruckner in that it is early Romantic in style--Schubert or Schumann, although the scherzo sounds like the Bruckner we know. Tintner brings out its lyricism (with a little cheating, he admits). It certainly ranks with the symphonies of Schumann. Once again, the RSNO is superb and the sound is excellent. But do not listen to the "filler" too soon after listening to the symphony. This second version of the last movement of the fourth was quite properly rejected by Bruckner. Although as usual the performance is excellent, it just isn't good Bruckner. But it is the Bruckner we know as opposed to this romantic lyricist of the symphony and the contrast between the two works is so extreme that you almost find yourself wishing Bruckner had not become Bruckner. But the CD is a splendid addition to what has been a spendid series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bruckner finding his voice May 20 2000
Format:Audio CD
This symphony, Bruckner's first attempt at the form, hints at the masterpieces to come. However, it belies its influences very easily. While it still has moments that show Bruckner's unique voice, I hear a lot of Beethoven, Schubert, and Schumann in this symphony. The excellent scherzo is probably the portion of the symphony that stands out as being the most "Brucknerian"; Bruckner always wrote great scherzos and this is no exception. Tintner gives a sensitive and devoted performance that is up to the high standards of this series. The Symphony 00 is definitely worth the investment for Bruckner or Tintner fans, but it obviously is not on the same level as Bruckner's mature symphonies.
The filler is the 20 minute "Volksfest" finale to Bruckner's Symphony No. 4. It is the second of three different finales Bruckner wrote for this popular symphony. It is structured differently from the final version, but you will recognize a lot of the same melodies. I was very impressed by Tintner's performance; I think I will program the first 3 movements of Tintner's full Symphony No. 4 but substitute this "Volksfest" finale from time to time as a change of pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good case for an early Bruckner work. June 7 2000
Format:Audio CD
Bruckner's two early un-numbered symphonies have often been treated as unwanted children even by avid Brucknerites. Granted the "00" has more in common with Schubert and Mendlesshon than later Bruckner but it is an enjoyable work in its own right. Even more enjoyable under Tintner whose love and dedication to Bruckner is obvious in all the recordings he has made for Naxos. The interesting filler entitled "Volksfest" is actually the finale movement of the original version of the 4th Symphony which is radically different than the versions heard today. "Volksfest" actually stands quite well on its own as a sort of symphonic poem. You can hear traces of the later version in it. Very fine performances all around at a great price.
