02. Finale: Misterioso, nicht schnell

YES! YES! YES!

Well,here is a Bruckner Ninth to reckon with! I fully agree that the first three movements have the kindof ferocious intensity that Furtwaengler brought to the score, and the addition of the reconstructed Finale makes this indepensible. This movement is truly the crown of his symphonic finales, and Eichhorn makes it sound glorious. Among modern Ninths, I still love the Tintner on Naxos, but the Eichhorn is even more a MUST. Avoid the Wildner performance on Naxos, it is very lax and sounds like the conductor is basically unsympathetic to the music.

  1. Thank you! This is said to be a good recording, and it’s one I had hoped to hear.

  2. ни одна из известных мне попыток “завершить” 9-ю симфонию Брукнера не принесла мне чувства удовлетворенности.

    ведь, если подумать, компилятор проявляет невиданную смелость: это ж все равно, что заявить: я равен по гениальности Брукнеру в его пиковой форме, и я сумел залезть к нему в мозги и выскрести оттуда финал 9-й.

    отчаянный шаг, честно говоря.

  3. Thank you very very much. I’ve been looking for this version of s completion of the 9th for a long time.
