HD-Vinyls 24/192 (DGG) Anton Bruckner – Symphony No. 7 (Karajan)


Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony is considered his most perfectly conceived, and it has remained among the most performed of his works. The immediate success of his Seventh certainly must have given Bruckner some much needed confidence over the fate of his music.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (CBS) Anton Bruckner – Symphony No. 8 (Szell)

front-small-boxset
One of the greatest misconceptions about George Szell is that, while he was able to drill orchestras into incomparable playing, his interpretations were metronomic and lacked imagination. What a load of tosh.
George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra were long known for becoming one of the greatest orchestras of the 20th century. Using balance, precision and a desire for perfection, Szell was able to achieve results very few orchestras in the world could hope to achieve. While Szell was often portrayed in the media and society as cold or dictator like, his leadership resulted in the Cleveland Orchestra producing some of the finest Mozart, Bruckner, Beethoven and Haydn recordings ever made.

My first classical rip with the new mono rig! This one is by request…

From the 14LP box set… Edition Wilhelm Furtwängler – RIAS recordings with the Berlin Philharmonic.

This means that Furtwangler’s interpretations are made accessible to the listener with their original dynamics. However, alongside the ff passages, with no dynamic alteration, there are also very soft ppp passages during which background noise is audible. – from the back of the box
