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.
