I had high hopes for this recording which seems to have been well received by others. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed by what I heard. Another posted has already expressed my thoughts. I quote:
"The entire performance left me bored. I could hardly keep my patience, and almost skipped ahead repatedly. Although I blamed Bruckner, I later found that it was merely a poor interpretation. "
In addition to problems with the interpretation, the orchestra sounded like they had not rehearsed adequately. The recorded sound was dull with poor balance and little hall ambience.
I strongly recommend the Horenstein/BBC version instead.
