5.0 out of 5 stars Experience it. Jan. 22 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a surprisingly good performance of the 6th symphony by the NZSO, and a testament to the great artistry of Georg Tintner. Bruckner on many occasions modified the scores of his symphonies, often against his will. The Sixth is one of the luckiest in the sense that it has never undergone any wholesale alteration by Bruckner. It is, however, also one of the unluckiest of all Bruckner's symphonies for it frequently receives astonishingly poor interpretations.
The first movement starts with a simple yet difficult marking - 'Majestoso'. Bruckner went through an untiring effort to make sure that despite the palpable energy that permeates the entire movement, the music should be majestic in nature. Unfortunately, the cautiously skeletal markings are often blatantly ignored by many conductors who add numerous flashy and unnecessary tricks in their performances, leading ultimately to this movement sounding more Beethovenian than Brucknerian. Under the stoic and sensitive guidance of Tintner, the austere majesty of the work emerges with humbling beauty. The tempi are naturally paced, and the NZSO responds with an unerring accuracy that puts many world-class orchestral powerhouses to shame. The second movement of the symphony is perhaps one of the most heart-wrenching human utterances ever written. The poignant beauty of the movement makes it especially vulnerable to over-dramatization, as exemplified by the otherwise extremely fine Celibidache's rendition on EMI. The movement begins and ends with a heartrending oboe solo. It brings an untold story from the distance, and it takes with it the present despair to the distance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very fine indeed! Aug. 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I cannot really amplify any more what others had said here, except that there is a superb warmth to these performances that give great depth to the 6th.
This is certainly a tough Bruckner work to perform and as an orchestral player have found this to be my favorite from a performance perspective.
.... In terms of sonics it is well recorded with a natural quality.
Many years ago Klemperer did a super version as well with the London Phiharmonia and this is the only other 6th in the entire catoloque worth having !!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of the best! Feb. 9 2002
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big Bruckner fan and I can't completely say why yet. I do know that when Tintner got his Bruckner going right he kept pouring it on and this is no exception. This is without a doubt worth 4-5 stars for anyone with a heart and ears.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've heard them all July 6 2001
Format:Audio CD
In my 56 years I have heard about every recording of this symphony that his been available in the US, starting with the Swoboda-conducted lp on Westminster back in the 50s. Keilberth/Berlin, Stein/VPO, Klemperer/Amsterdam and New Philharmonia have been the highlights for me. I rate this recording among them. I find it rhythmically alert in the 1st movement, and for once the finale has purpose and direction as well as drive and energy. I also think the coda of the first movt. -- one of Bruckner's most remarkable -- is perhaps the finest here of any recording I now own or can remember.
Perhaps I just find myself in tune with Tinter's approach. I now own the complete set, and value it as highly as Jochum's EMI set, and not only for offering alternate ecitions of the scores. That, I believe, says it all.
