Karajan Bruckner 8 - Bruckner: Symphony No. 8 / Brahms: Tragic Overture / Hindemith: Mathis Der Maler Symphony

Herbert von Karajan leads the Wiener Philharmoniker through Bruckner's Symphonies Nos. 8 and 9 and Te Deum. Von Karajan was not only the conductor of these recordings but also director and responsible for artistic supervision.


Knappertsbusch Bruckner - Bruckner: Symphony No.8 / Wagner: Siegfried Idyll; Preludes (2 Cds)

A newly restored collection of previously released (and no longer available) Knappertbusch best sellers from our catalog. Bruckner's Symphony No. 3 first released on Music & Arts CD-257 (1987); Symphony No. 4 on CD-249 (1987); Symphony No. 7 on CD-209 (1986), and Symphonies 4 through 9 in boxed set CD-1028 (1998), which included a different version of Symphony No. 3. Jeffrey Lipscomb wrote of the previous edition, CD-1028, in his amazon.com review: "Kna was one of the great Bruckner interpreters - he was unique in conveying this music's earthy, almost primeval side. Kna was a stubborn advocate of the so-called `revised' editions (Kluge's notes make a compelling argument for them)." And Tony Duggan wrote of the same set in Music-Web  ...


Jochum Bruckner 5 - Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 / Mozart: Symphony No. 33 / Bruckner: Symphony No. 3 (jochum) (1944, 1948)

Eugen Jochum's 1938 Bruckner Fifth, reissued here for the first time since the early LP era, documents the first of the conductor¹s five published recordings of a symphony particularly close to his heart. The engineering is unusually refulgent and well-balanced for its vintage, conveying a more cogent and proportioned orchestral image than the close-up immediacy distinguishing Karl Böhm's pioneering Bruckner Fifth with the Dresden Staatskapelle from two years earlier. The Hamburg State Philharmonic may have been considered a second-string orchestra in relation to their first-tier Dresden colleagues in the late 1930s, but Jochum consistently secures richer, more expressive string playing and better-blended brass (especially in the Finale's chorale) from his Hamburg forces. More significant, Jochum's spacious conception and his penchant  ...


Jochum Bruckner 7 - ブルックナー:交響曲第7番、モーツァルト:交響曲第33番 (jochum / Bruckner : Symphony No.7, Mozart : Symphony No.33) [2 Sacd]

These two performances are taken from Eugen Jochum's second complete Bruckner cycle, which is slowly reappearing two symphonies at a time in budget- priced repackaging. The performances are almost uniformly wonderful (only the Eighth was disappointing this second time around, mostly for sonic reasons), and these are two of the best. The Seventh Symphony, in particular, has a luminous quality to the long string melodies and a glowing sound to the brass that gives the music that special, spiritual aspect unique to Bruckner. The famous Adagio second movement has never sounded more solemn or serene, with a stunning midmovement climax. A great bargain. --David Hurwitz  ...

Brahms Symphony 1 - Brahms: Symphony No. 1 / Variations On A Theme / 5 Hungarian Dances (essential Classics)

What can you say about George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra? No other conductor and orchestra has ever turned in performances of such discipline and transparency of sound--not Karajan and Berlin, not Solti and Chicago--no one! In Brahms, where the natural thickness of the orchestral writing is always a peril, they never put a foot wrong. And all of this at budget price, too! Simply amazing. --David Hurwitz


Brahms Symphony 1 - Brahms: Symphony No. 1 / Gesang Der Parzen (song Of The Fates)

Claudio Abbado's partnership with the Berlin Philharmonic has produced virtually nothing of interest on disc, but his Brahms is an exception. These are very sensitive performances, more lyrical than most, but never lacking in energy or intensity. The orchestra sounds better than it did playing this music for Herbert von Karajan, and the coupling is both unusual and very well done. A pleasant surprise in what has been in general a very disappointing legacy. --David Hurwitz


Jochum Bruckner - The Symphonies - Beethoven-brahms-bruckner

Jochum was one of the most highly praised interpreters of Bruckners magnificent music, finding its mystery as well as its eloquence, breadth and humanity. Here are his complete recordings.

Jochum Bruckner - The Symphonies - Beethoven-brahms-bruckner

Eugen Jochum conducts Bruckner's Symphony No. 2 with an ear for it's classical underpinnings. The music flows freely, with seamlessly dovetailed transitions between sections. The first movement's rhythmic second subject builds tremendous energy at Jochum's quick pace, but then he really pours on the speed for the coda. These same qualities grace the remainder of the performance-the adagio shimmers serenely under Jochum's elegant sensitivity, while his sense of Beethovenian drama propels the finale to a bracing close. The Staatskapelle Dresden provides spectacular playing, and the only drawback is Jochum's use of the Nowak edition of the score, which imposes extensive cuts throughout (including an especially disfiguring one in the finale).  ...


Jochum Brahms - The Symphonies - Beethoven-brahms-bruckner

These performances mount the only serious competition as a complete set to the Leon Fleisher/George Szell versions on Sony Classical. Emil Gilels was an extraordinary virtuoso who decided to place his technical wizardry in the service of the most disciplined and demanding classical masterpieces. No piano concertos live up to this description more than the two by Brahms. Himself a pianist, Brahms placed every purely musical stumbling block that he could in front of the soloist--only audiences never notice because there's no gratuitous display at all. A performer who has not mastered these pieces doesn't necessarily miss notes; he or she just bores everyone to tears. Well, Gilels is never dull,  ...


Jochum Brahms - The Symphonies - Beethoven-brahms-bruckner

The same London Philharmonic that sounds bored out of its collective mind on Wolfgang Sawallisch's Brahms cycle here seems to be playing on the edge of its seat. Eugen Jochum's much more positive direction is certainly at least partially responsible. He's a tremendously inspiriting Brahms conductor, and these are performances full of fire and passion. The Fourth Symphony comes separately, coupled with Klaus Tennstedt's German Requiem, and at the twofer price, these are four CDs not to be missed. --David Hurwitz
